Cronkman – my partner in the Gnarley Wood Shoppe – is even more ‘puter illeterate than I am, but I have some pix of his work. This is a blanket chest he made for his daughter-in-law. The oak is from wood he has milled over the past 20 plus years – air dried white oak. The cedar liner is Tennessee Red Cedar his brother shipped out to him. On a personal note, I don’t know much about Tennessee Red Cedar other than it REALLY screwed up our re-saw blades (I hate Tennessee Red Cedar). Cronkman did a stellar job of craftsmanship on this project. I am proud to call him my friend and fellow poor trash artesian – Schroeder

Cronk: Great job. The Aromatic red cedar that I’ve used from Missouri was a dream to saw. What kind of problems did you have resawing?

Beautiful chest. I don’t know anything about Tennessee Red Cedar, either, but Louisiana Cedar is some pretty tough stuff, too. I had smoke coming from a tablesaw blade when trying to cut some dried logs into boards. I think green would be better to cut, then drying afterwards.

How wide were the Cedar boards that you were sent that caused you to have to resaw?

I’m still waiting to find out what it did to the blade too.

Beautiful Chest. Seems like it would weigh a lot.

I always loved the smell opening a chest like that!
