    no tree too big, I think that is a good deal. He's already done the hard part, steaming them and bending them for curved bar tops. All you have to do is load them with your loader, haul them home with your trailer, saw them on your mill, dry them in your kiln, plane them on your flattener, sand them with your sander, resin/stain them in your shop, display them in your "store", deal with the 200 idiots with no cash and tire kickers, finally find the correct idiot with cash, deliver it to his house on your trailer, install it for free and hopefully they will give you a $10 tip. Now get off yur lazy azz and chase those logs, there's pennies to be made.

    We got rid of several hundred tires with a free ad on C List.

    I figured at least get rid of some if the better ones before hauling tgem to the dump. Parking lot was picked clean within a few days. Only tire left was a blown out 10.00x20 on a bent wheel.

    Good to know. I have a doz laying around that I’m too cheap to pay to get rid of. Maybe I should post them with a price a $1/tire and post a pics of repurposed uses.

    Some were still usable, just a size we had no use for. Some were pretty well "maypops" and some were probably new when LBJ was in office.

    Here is one, this guy has not been able to find this firewood in 2 months on craigslist.



    Posted about 6 hours ago







    condition: excellent
    size / dimensions: 4-5 cords, 16" long, Oak only

    QR Code Link to This Post

    Hi - I'd like to buy some well-seasoned split red and/or white oak firewood that is all 16" long so I can stack it in a clean way, and split into sizes so that I can pick up each piece with one hand if necessary. I'm interested in buying 4 true cords of this if you have the exact wood I'm describing - please do not contact me about other types of wood, or sizes, or condition because I know what we want to burn. Your truck can easily back right up to my racks. If you can deliver to Wesley Chapel, NC, text me a photo or two of your firewood, and let me know your nice low asking price and schedule. Thanks.

    I have a friends who's uncle used to recycle tires. He had a giant press that squeezed the oil out of them. When he told me about it I was a bit skepticle. So, I called my wife's uncle, who was a chemicle engineer for Sun Oil. Sure enough, he said there was as much as 6 quarts of oil in a tire.

    Was that in a 'free' listing? I know a lot of people who would jump at that for landscaping, keeping firewood off the ground, etc.

    I know where that highway entrance is. My daughter went to school up that way. If the bricks were free and about 3 hours towards WV I'd be interested. I'm planning a 14 by 20 2 story barn on my WV hunting property.

    I'm in Frederick Md. My daughter went to Alvernia. My WV property is about 6 hours from the bricks. Too far to scrounge . But, if they were closer, I'd be calling.
