Sometimes it's good to do favours
Sometimes a good deed has it's rewards. A former client of mine who is retired but also has a love of timber as I do, asked a favour....he had a huge lump of Cedar, 120mm wide, 180mm high & 1100mm long that he wanted to cut into 20mm thick boards to be used for a set of shelves. He didn't have big enough equipment to mill it so he gave me a call a while back and asked if we could use my gear at the shed....no problems....so we spent the morning having a great time..plenty of laughs and talking about timber and family. After a few hours we had cut the Cedar into boards on my bandsaw and then finished them in the thicknesser.
He also brought over a couple of Blackwood pieces 120x50x1800 and asked if we could throw them through the thicknesser. He was pleased as punch and asked what I wanted for my time & effort. I said I didn't want anything as I had worked closely with him for over 30 years but he insisted that he was going to buy me a nice bottle of Dalwhinnie Scotch for my troubles. 😁😁🥃🥃
I told him not to go overboard but we shall see what turns up.
