Default Eating Crow - Loving Cedar Now

I made comment in an earlier thread.....something like "I don't like cutting Cedar. It's too soft."

I'll take a little salt with my "crow" please.

It cuts easy (there's the first bite of Crow), it finishes beautifully (there's the second bite of Crow), and the Aromatic Cedar smell good when I cut it (the third bite of Crow).

Next, I'm gonna try some of the "picket fence" Cedar to see how I get along with it (and the last bite of Crow goes down).

It's great for hand carving too Frank. Do wear good respiratory protection while you are working with it. It ended one of my uncle's logging career. He was around 60 when it finally caught up to him. He couldn't go from the living room to the bathroom without stopping to catch his breath. His exposure was 1000's of times what the average person would get but it affects every one differently just like peanuts do.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Charles, I wear a respirator anytime I am working. I have severe allergies so I wear respiratory protection to mow the yard.

I love cedar for making signs for all the reason you mentioned. The Western Red Cedar (fencing) is inexpensive and beautiful when finished. I only wish the fencing cedar came wider than 1 x 6. I use the WRC when ever possible.

Great looking results, Frank. Something to be proud of.

After years of experience, I find that some A1 sauce or Worcestershire sauce helps the flavor of crow meat.

It seems I never finish what I

Good show, Frank. We're going to start scaring some pros if we keep this up.

Did you freehand the painting or mask it? Acrylic, I assume. Looks like it'll go outside - finish coat of something or going natural?

Anybody ever use paintmask?

I think crow tastes like chicken. I've ate my share and then some.
