Last weekend our class journeyed to West Wind Hardwood on Vancouver Island in search of wood.
It was an epic trip entirely on public transport from Roberts Creek to Sidney - bus, ferry, bus, Skytrain, bus, another ferry, bus...
I very much enjoy seeing my shop mates outside the shop and away from the Creek!
We were greeted by this glorious sign out front.
We started off with a short talk from Robert on lumberyard etiquette and purchasing wood.
"You can never have too much wood."
We came away with a nice stack of wood, including Narra, Kwila, Teak, Goncalo Alves, Padouk, and some extremely tight-grained Fir.
It was a great time with all of you and we are already looking forward to our next wood run!
