    Nicely done! Looks great, did you use a finish?

    Thank you! I used Howard's butcher block finish, I'll probably sand and coat again.

    Thank you! It's one of my favorite smelling woods, other than fresh ponderosa

    Never had the opportunity to work with cedar from the PNW... Does it smell like juniper in any way?

    We have multiple cedars. All with unique smell. Not like juniper.

    If you still have any left in a few weeks I'd like to get some from you to carve out. The variety of wood here is fairly limited
