Small Eastern Red Cedar to cut?
« on: November 02, 2017, 11:13:35 am »
  Started to make a 4 inch post from this short cut off and when I made the
 first thin cut I found this....


Made a couple more half inch cuts and wondering how would be best way to cut it up or maybe leave the rest to maybe turn a bowl.?






What's left is about 8 inches thick and 13 inches across the middle.
