Painting Camouflage with Krylon Spray Paint

Don’t get spotted in the wild!  Just in time to prepare for the upcoming hunting seasons we have Krylon Camouflage Paint made with Fusion for Plastic® Technology that can assist you in staying out of sight and achieving your the best shot possible.

Available at both stores in 4 colors (Camo Green, Camo Khaki, Camo Brown and Camo Black) and @ $6.78 a spray can.

Camouflage is all about gaining an advantage over the target by blending into the environment, giving you the greatest advantage at being successful.  There are countless patterns of camouflage meant to blend into your terrain and vegetation but stick to mimicking the environment you’re hunting in.  It doesn’t make much sense to use camouflage on clothing and equipment but leave out  your gun.

Below is an easy way to accomplish a custom camouflaged gun for any terrain.

You can paint camouflage using the instructions on the video below from the YouTube channel InnerBark Outdoors to paint coolers, vehicles, firearms, and more! Want to know more about InnerBark Outdoors? Visit their website HERE and follow them on social media!

Camouflage Painting Tips

  • The best way to camouflage an object is to match it to the surroundings in which it will be located
  • Use colors in the same family that work well together
  • Start painting with the lightest color and move to the darkest color
  • Look to nature and use local tree leaves, ferns and branches as your stencils
  • Take your time. Let coats fully dry! Since there is a lot of overlapping, small mistakes won’t show
  • As with any spray paint, use several light coats instead of one heavy coat
  • Always read the directions before applying the spray paint

A Happy Customer

Nothing makes a retailer happier than knowing that your customers are so pleased that they take the effort to contact you and share their experience.  We received this one from Paul in Port Angeles.

“I recently completed a potting shed for my wife and wanted to share it with you. I started in September and finished last week — the winter weather wasn’t very cooperative. About 97% of the materials came from Angeles Millworks, whose entire staff was very helpful and encouraging throughout the project.  They’re great folks — please share that sentiment with them. I remain a very happy customer, and my wife is  happy, too!”Cheers, Paul

We encourage you to contact us if you have a project you have worked on or an experience you would like to share with us, good or bad. We love customer feedback!

Countervailing Duty on Canadian Softwood – The Platinum Tape, a blog by Kelly Fox

Friends and Neighbors,

After months of speculation, it finally happened, the Trump administration announced that the countervailing duty on Canadian softwood would be set at 19.88%.  If this was the end of it, we could let the smoke clear and start anew in the weeks and months ahead.  Unfortunately, this is not the case so we have a long protracted fight on our hands that will keep the consumer doing what they always do, pay the higher price.  Let us look at what we do know and what we can expect.

Through the regulatory process and our part of the NAFTA agreement, both sides will get the opportunity to state their case in an appeals process.  The final ruling on this issues is not expected until sometime in January 2018.  If history is a good teacher on these issues, the Canadians have almost always won the argument.  Now that we know the fight is a long way from over, let us get down to the more immediate impact on our community.

The first thing I looked following the announcement this morning were the currency markets.  As expected, the Canadian dollar declined.  In a part of the country that depends on Canadian tourism to support our local economy, the weak dollar does not help.  Seeing the restaurants full and the Black Ball moving at capacity is good for all of us that call Clallam County home.  At the end of the day, our business is only as strong as the local economy and every part helps.

The second thing I looked at this morning was the lumber markets to see what was happening.  Surprisingly, everything has remained fairly calm with very little commotion in price files. Of greater concern to us, the impact of this announcement on supply has yet to be fully felt.  We know that we are running into shortage issues in the current market.

If any big producers decide to take drastic action, like not selling into the US market it could leave us very short on supply.  We are conducting a survey to find out how you would like us to respond in the event supply of the #2 & Better Premium we currently offer becomes unavailable.  If you would like to help us, please click here.

The last thing I did this morning was grab the phone and ask for input from our buyers, our supplier partners, and our network.  I learned that most everyone is in the same position as we are with more questions than answers.  That consensus opinion is to not take speculative positions on excess inventory in the near term.

We will follow the market and replace what we sell and try to maintain our business to be nimble with the market.  This will keep our pricing current and eliminate the potential for big profits and big losses.  With that position, we will be relying heavily on our buyers to ensure that we are refilling our stock more frequently in addition to our vendor managed programs.

Like everything in life, the dust will settle on this issue.  When it does, we will be here taking care of our friends and neighbors just as we have been for 111 years.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns about the market; we are here to help.  Please follow our blog or friend us on Facebook for updates as they become available.  I can also be reached via email at kellyf@lumbertradersinc.com or in the store @ 360-452-8933 for more pressing concerns.

Thanks,

Kelly
