De-barking

20130722-005136.jpg

I shipped one of the two-foot sections to Lorrie’s studio where I planned to work on it. UPS Ground ships anything…even logs…under 150lbs. very reasonably, I was happy to learn. Here, I’ve begun to remove the bark, using a flat chisel, mallet, and Ryoba (http://www.japanwoodworker.com/product/156413/240mm-ripcrosscut-saw-ryoba-noko-giri–koshino-shoku.aspx) saw. You can see the familiar red color of cedar wood about one-and-a-half inches inside, once the bark is removed. And that wonderful cedar smell…!
