Had a big slab of live edge Port Orford Cedar in the shed, but had made a fatal mistake of putting in the shed before it was dry, and the bark was still on. Some of the local borer thought that was a good idea, and decimated the sapwood before it dried out properly. Could see a few holes when i pulled it out, but when I cut into it, the sapwood was just sawdust. No live bugs, but not much wood either.
So I ripped off the sapwood and made some nice big turning blanks, ~12" dia and 3" thick, and some smaller 3x3 stuff.
Love it when you get the chisel cutting just right.
Only down side is that Lil has a bad reaction to this particular wood, so i have to have a shower and wash all the "man glitter" out of my hair before she will come near me.
Head out tomorrow and off this platter.
