Northern white cedar project
 
Hey came across a slab of northern white cedar approx 42”x 12”x2 1/4. What to do with it? Don’t really have anything in mind. Open to ideas.

Re-saw (slice) into 2 pieces 42"L x 12" W X 1" thick.
Edge glued you will have a slab 42"L X 24"W X 1" Thick.
This will make a small coffee table top
Then make the legs and apron out of something else.

OR

Use the slab as is for a table and make a set of legs and an apron out of something else and you will have a console or hall table.

OR

Jewelry Boxes

Just hoard it for the next ten years before you finally think of a use for it, that's what most of us do to wood in general...

Unfortunately so for many.
However, I am not a hoarder. When I had my shop, I was always building something. I got this thing about tables, I love building them and selling them. Anything from writing tables to console tables to coffee tables. It's easier for me to sell them them than to sell dining tables on speculation.

The main thing is ............JUST MAKE SOMETHING!
