Absolutely beautiful. I love cedar. I don’t use it often but, it sure is pretty when finished. Great job

Well done! I had just recently aquired some cedar from a neighbor’s downed tree, and was not quite sure what to do with it until now.

Beautiful job. I made a solid cedar blanket chest a few years ago from some free cedar. I want more of it.

When you dry the wood, if you use a dehumidifier, watch the water that collects. You might see an oil on the top. This is oil from the cedar and you may want to skim that off and keep it. It is the same oil that gives you the smell.

Griff, that’s a beautiful piece of furniture and you’ve done a great job on it.
