Can’t see the forest for the trees

We received a new shipment of Northern White Cedar today from Portage Mills. It is beautiful clear wood and will make for some gorgeous boards. We receive the boards as 1″x 6″ rough sawn lumber. Once it is air dried, we surface plane it, square up the edges on the tablesaw then resaw it on the bandsaw into the final plank thickness. Some boards then go back to the tablesaw to get ripped into rail strips. Those rail strips then go to the router table to get beaded and coved. It’s a lot of steps, but the pay off is watching each board take shape.
