southern red cedar boat?

Post by cape man » Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:08 pm

Posting this to mark the beginning... 40' plus Southern Red Cedar that had to go. Cut into 1" wide boards... Something that floats to come...

Sorry about the language at the end, but it wasn't supposed to hit the palm (which is fine anyway...).
