Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Cedar is what they use to making cigar boxes of, keeps the humidity and drives bugs away.

I had a house listed not far from here on a lake (rich folks) and their walk-in closet was all lined with cedar, all shelves were also made of cedar, red cedar that is.

I use aromatic cedar to keep the mother out of valuable antiques, mostly old Indian stuff and feathers.

Another $150.00 to grind the stump and we declined. I'll burn it out.
I really enjoyed burning the stumps. Takes a bit but it was a good way to spend some time in the winter with snow on the ground.
When I felled the Locust trees I had to buy extra blades for the chainsaws.
The wood is so hard you're getting sparks flying from it.

The best heat though I ever had from the stove.

I apologize. The bench I put in the driveway is wormy Chestnut. Not polished. Just sealed.
Sawmill cut. If the wood has any good places the pistol grips that could be made would be worth some money.

Don't care. It was a good place for Gramps or Grandma to stop and chat with the sons and later the grandkids.

The old Northern Cedar tree was solid clear through and all the way to the top...they are there again today finishing the 'pickup' and retrieving their large equipment...too bad the old tree had to go but that's progress for you. When settlers came here to the NW Coast the trees were so thick and tall that you couldn't see the sky from the wagon roads and folks complained of 'depression' n shit like dat!

The wife as well as every other female was given a Cedar jewelry box from the Lane furniture company back then.
Like usual they closed down also.

We still have the old Cedar chest for woolen clothing made by the same company.

And a few locust fence posts still survive.
Life on the mountain in a home built from locust logs to support the structure.
It's Bonafides.are documented from the 1860's
Do I want it in the National Registry?
Nope.
It means people can come up the driveway.

That is most likely Northern Red Cedar...I don't think they make chests out of it.

Eastern red cedar is used for chests, the heart wood is aromatic and it’s actually a juniper. Finding ones around here with large diameter trunks are kind of rare typically they blow over in wind storms and lots of ice.

My preferred chests aren’t made of wood though, and are supple and nurturing
