Any more I do not buy any wood grown outside of NC. Just a thing with me. I'll only buy wood grown in NC, but am more than pleased if I can swap for wood grown elsewhere, and every once in awhile get given some. Love free wood. Have a smallish box full of exotic woods, some I can't even pronounce, and none from NC, all free, saving for special projects.

Gather the villagers, pitchforks, torches; we march at dusk!
Some days, the supply of available curse words is insufficient to meet my demands.
.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
