Wow! Very nice. I really like the look of the live edge. I would like to try building something with Red Cedar, but that stuff doesn’t grow up here so I’ll have to stick with our white stuff. Beautiful book cases. Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The color of the eastern cedar amazes me, No problem with it breaking from too much weight, guarateed for life with no extra fee.
