Who would think a log this gray and ugly could yield such beauty inside, but its there.

That is fantastic. You do great work, and thank you for giving me an idea for a dining chair design. I was trying to find some kind of design that I might be able to build that did not involve carving a seat. Do you know what kind of wood that is?

Carving a seat is time consuming, but its easy and the end result is spectacular. Not saying my slat chairs are bad, but carving is very easy with the holey galahad and a random orbit sander. Look at my other project, carved seats are well worth the time and investment in tools. Eastern red cedar is the wood. Log is seasoned roughly 6 months for wormy figure in the live edges.

Very little sapwood in that cedar. A nice find!

Beautiful. I like how you used the sapwood on the table to look like banding or trim.
