My daughter says the Garlic Cellar works well so I made a similar one for my wife out of Yellow Cedar. I’ll try some out of Red Cedar later, with some different hole patterns and shapes.

That’s a fine looking storage cellar John. I’m still trying to talk my wife into using one of these. Nice selection of wood.

That’s very cool John. Yellow cedar is such a great wood to turn. Very aromatic. W
hat’s the deal with the holes? I would have thought you would want to keep the garlic smell confined.

Thanks all. Mark the holes help prevent the Garlic going moldy, the darkness helps prevent the Garlic sprouting.

Cedar would turn real nice, I need to get on that lathe some time! Just came off the Island but pulling trailer so no extra trip to the Sunshine Coast this time. Them Ferries are real costly for oversize! My garlic (some of Tony’s) should almost be ready by the time I get home. Congrats on top 3!!!!!
