Sawing Some Cedar

Postby Aeronut » Sat May 09, 2015 5:59 pm

Last March I procured a chunk of cedar from the OJAM grounds and did a little sawing on it today. After cutting I sealed the ends and set them aside to cure some more.

A lot of you will probably recognize what these will become and where they will wind up so this is just a little sneak peek. More pictures will follow as the project progresses.

By the time I am through with this project I will hate the smell of cedar for quite some time.

Looking good! Should make some fine calls. Keep me in mind when they are complete.

I will be posting more pictures as I work on them. I plan on letting them cure for about three more months before I turn them.

I have started a video of making one out of Osage and I will post it on here when I am done with it.



I videoed this at 120 frames/second and slowed it down to 5% of the original speed or 6 frames/second. There are a lot of hot shavings and sawdust coming off of that blank and my little finger takes a beating.

I found a moisture meter at Home Depot that connects to a smart phone. It is made by Ryobi along with several other phone tools/gadgets. I'm thinking of making a small warming bow to help cure the blanks.

Ranc. I told a Nebraska friend that many years ago I made some cedar chests for my two sisters and brother for Christmas presents. After that the smell of cedar made me half sick. I still haven't made myself a cedar chest and I was starting to really question my sanity when I started this project.
