How best to sell tools, machines, and wood
My Boston-area father was an avid woodworker and carpenter. He had an entire workshop full of high-quality, very well-maintained machines such as lathes and drill presses. He also collected wood, especially fairly hard-to-find and very high-quality pieces such as black walnut. He stored all of it in the house or in a dry shed, all with spacers and other means to avoid warping.
Now Dad has passed, and we need to find a good way to sell these items. We'd rather sell than donate, as 88-yr-old Mom desperately needs the money. We would rather not post it on Craigslist and have many strangers pacing through the house. Any ideas????
