I took my 4-year old son to Rockler today. We always go look at the lumber while we’re there. Today there was a small cutoff of aromatic cedar in the stack. I handed it to my son and told him to smell it..
Me: Did you smell it?
Him: Yeah. It smells like sausage!

He’s always a kick to have around. He also always asks the people working there if they have any Jobi Wood (This is a fictional wood used in Thomas the Train to build a search and rescue station).

FYI, Rockler doesn’t stock jobi wood.

Juniperus virginiana — its common names include red cedar, eastern redcedar, Virginian juniper, eastern juniper, red juniper, pencil cedar, and aromatic cedar — is a species of juniper native to eastern North America from southeastern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and east of the Great Plains. Further west it is replaced by the related Juniperus scopulorum (Rocky Mountain juniper) and to the southwest by Juniperus ashei (Ashe juniper).
