    Default Red Cedar Boxes

    Hi gang, sorry no completed boxes here, but no doubt a lot on there way. I come home yesterday arvo and found all this red cedar on my front lawn. A mate's newphew owns a property over near Uralla, on which a 100 year old red cedar tree was cut down about 40 years ago and milled. All this has been stored in a container for that period of time. He has already given me a lot of this, and now all this arrived.

    More work, more boxes,...!!

    Thanks Dave and Dallas, I just spent most of the afternoon cutting them up on my drop saw. All cut into about 530mm lengths. Found a corner in my shed to stack all them on. Some beautiful grain when they are sliced.
