Well,,, Where does one get anything worth having? You either work hard to get it or you pay someone else to do the work. In my case I'm nearly always the brain and the brawn of the project.

I prefer for the logs to find me. This happens when a land owner is faced with removing their beloved shade tree and can't bear to see it all go to firewood or to the dump. They some times phone me to tell me the story of their tree and explain they'd rather see it be used for art and not just firewood.

Bartering is an option but with so many free logs to be had, I only barter for very special logs or for logs that are delivered to me. Still, I've made a deal or two through the years.
Unfortunately, many people wanting to barter or sell their logs have a hugely inflated idea about the value of their log. Their co-worker may have told them it's work thousands of dollars. I say, let their coworker buy it. LOL
