How do you like your blanks?

Gary Evans Tallassee, TN
>Hi all,
I'm cutting up some wood to take to a sale next weekend.

My question is this:

For those of you who buy wood. Do you prefer to buy dimensioned blanks and pay the processing costs? Or, do you prefer to buy round and half round sections for less money?

For those of you who don't buy wood, I'm sure I'm going to hear tales of "Free Wood." I have scavenged a lot of wood over the past few years and it has been my experience that there is no such thing as "Free Wood." There will be time, fuel, sweat and maybe a little blood invested in any wood that you take from the log to the lathe. If you figure your time at your normal hourly rate, you may find that the "Free Wood" wasn't exactly free. JMHO

Thanks,
Gary
