i had to pick one of the hardest ones to start out with ,my old table saw and the rest of my tools are the happy home owner version . had to use a lot of what my old boss used to cal pixie dust [fine saw dust] LOL. the wood is red ceder, cherry, boat ark [horse apple] some people call it ,which sould have been called iron wood.all and all my wife loves it so i guess it turned out all right.

Nice Job…. I have been wanting to build my first CB as well. I didn’t think about using Bois d’ arc but it looks really good with the grain and adds to the tumbling illusion very well. Thanks for the inspiration and Thanks for sharing!!!!

Very nice! I can’t make one like this, it’ll have to be “monocolor”- my wife has eye problems and would have trouble cutting things on it.

Everett1, I cook salmon on a white cedar plank on the grille. Keeps it nice and moist. I think that red cedar shouldn’t be a problem, especially if it is saturated with mineral oil. But I don’t have a definitive answer. However-
