I Had this large chunk of cedar that was a salvage from the wood chipper at the dump. I got 2 blanks, the other one is an ongoing project--needed lots of help because of wood ants.
This one is 11 x 3 inches. Had some inclusions that were worrisome at first, but made for nice figure.
Finish is lacquer to show the grain and color. And did I say it smells nice?

Good work! My experience with cedar has been less that fun. Stuff I got had invisible splits that would launch bowl parts across the room partway through turning. Yours probably dried under much more controlled circumstances.
Haha, Gary-- that's been my experience too. It tends to split unexpectedly, and then no matter how dry it is, micro cracks show up later. Kind of a temporary beauty, plus the red will darken to brown later.
