I am wondering, I have found two besides myself. Any others from utah? I have a lot to learn about woodworking. That is a huge understatement!!!! I cut a lot of juniper (some call it cedar) both red and white, as well as everything else I can get my grimy little hands on. Looking for minds to pick about using it for furniture wood. Have a fair amount of logs and cut 5/4 and 4/4 dried and ready to finish of red and white cedar. Even have a small amount of Mt. Mahogany.

Thanks

Kevin

Sorry. I’m 3/4 of a country away. Hope some others closer can help you use some of it.

Hi Keven, I’m not very close either but as for what to make I like the small fast projects and found some that sell fairly well. We have Incense Cedar here and it works well for the projects I have posted here.

I am from SLC , and a small furniture shop foreman. There is a small network of great designer/maker around.
How are you drying the junper? I have never used it on a project, how does it handle in planers and jointers?

Piskin, the juniper/cedar dries fast. Especially when the logs are salvaged from a fire. The green juniper only takes a few days to dry in hot weather. As for planeing it is great! Holds nails and screws well too. Where are you from orginally? What type of wood do you prefer to work with? I cut most any type of wood native to the U.S. Also custom cut a clients logs into their dimensions, for their projects.
Roundabout22, I have been told that there is a Norwood sawmill owner in Moab. What type of wood do you work with?

I’m just a little further away than Piskin. Currently I am the science department at the Junior/Senior high school in Green River.

Close Mark, my major in college was geology. I don’t have to cut down trees, I just take the off cuts from student projects at the high school. You’d be amazed what they through in the scrap bin.
