What I have done is harvested 8 ceder trees off my property 5 yrs ago .I sold all trees and logger sawed some planks up for me to use later in life.They have been stored out in air under cover and decided to put to use. I have 6 more slabs left at 18-20 inch wide from 8-12 feet in length and all cut to 5/4.When all finished sanding and working out the dados I will spray many many coats of lacquer on it. No this is not a red cedar which we don’t have much of here in Washington
I guess it is better then making shakes or fence boards for another persons home.

I actually hope to find some Eastern (aromatic) Cedar trees, take pictures of them, thank God for making them, harvest them and make cedar chests for sale. The customer gets a picture of the tree his wood came from.

That’s a rock solid looking table, very nice. It’s nice be able to see exactly where the wood is from and then to create something like this is just beautiful.
