I am looking for a reliable Eastern Red Cedar source in South Eastern Minnesota (Rochester area). My father, who is 80 years old, makes cedar crosses day in day out, and gives them away by the hundreds to churches around the area, and anyone who he meets. I was buying lumber here in SC, cutting it up and sending it to him, but you can imagine that got expensive. Then I started using Ebay to find the cedar and have it shipped. Eliminated the re-cutting, and shipping, but the cost is still way out of sight.
So I’m looking for anyone close to Rochester, where he could go and pick up 5-10 board feet every month or so and pick his own, so he doesn’t complain about all the knots in the wood I have sent to him. ;) Cranky old guy…God love’m
So are there any sources up there? I did find FBT Sawmill, on the western side of the state off I-90, but that’s a bit of a drive for an 80 year old.
Thanks for any help on this.
