Eastern Red Cedar..in way of shop

Postby Robertfishes » Wed Jun 04, 2014 4:58 pm

I moved last year..But didn't move my 12' x 24' "bow Shop" building. I am finally getting round to it, I cut down a nice ERC tree today to make room, I had ends sealed with paint 5 minutes after it hit the ground. this section is 21 ft long, 17 inchs at big end and 12" at small end, other piece is 11 ft long. I am hoping to sell the 2 logs locally, but if I cant sell them then I will try to have a local saw mill cut it into boards ...OR.. If any of you guys want it you can have it for free, I have access to a tractor with a big root rake on front.. just bring a trailer I am in North Central Florida.. Image

Nice looking log! You could make a lot of stuff out of that besides bows.

Red Cedar, one of my favourites. Wish it, and I was about 1,500 miles closer. Great offer! Your a good Pirate.

I went by the local saw mill, Showed him a few pics of the 2 logs..if I bring them to his yard he will pay $25 total.. There is a guy down the road that builds stuff out of used or scrap lumber. I am giving him the logs, there's over 300bf of cedar there. He has a friend with a small saw mill and will cut into boards after drying for 12 months. I was thinking about making some bow racks out of the 3rd and smallest log. I have some wild cherry to cut down in the future..

Nolz, That would be awesome, I'll send some your way when it is dry. Could you use a few pieces for yourself? By the time the cedar dries I should have a box full of exotics including cocobolo, verawood, carreto, zebra, etc.. I also have some Kodiak brown "dymalux" I got from Cousineau 3 years ago, it is similar to dymondwood but thinner wood layers.. I could send you a few pieces of each.

Hey Nolz called in a young 2yr old this year with the wormy walnut one you made me a couple years ago... Worked like a charm! ;)
