Enjoy this solid piece of old cedar as you use it to make whatever you want. We use them under our potted plant containers to protect the surface as shown in the last picture with the bears. (Bear picture is just an example of the possible uses of the piece for sale. The bears are not for sale.) I suppose you could just put into your closet for the smell of cedar if you didnt want to build something out of it!
You are buying the block of aromatic cedar shown in this set of pictures. It is close to its rough form as I found it on the forest floor. I rough sanded both sides after cutting the thickness with a chain saw and the perimeter has been rough sanded to clean it up. You are buying it with all the imperfections that come standard with old dry cedar. Cracks, and flaws abound. As these old pieces of cedar age they often develop even more cracks. So with all of this in mind..........don't buy it if you want perfection. Buy it because nature made it for you to enjoy as it ages as we do. Better with time.
I have left the outside surface and shape as I found the log with the exception of cleaning up the surface with a sander. The ends, or length of the piece, have been saw cut and rough sanded to a aproximate length of 1 3/8".
Width: widest point is approximately 8 3/4", narrowest point is approximently 8"
Height: approximently 1 3/8"
Weight: 1 lb 11 oz

Why such a hard line policy?
The wood I am using to make each item (this does not apply to Bread slicing guides since they are made of new material) has been laying on the forest floor for many years. It has been subjected to insects, rain, wood decay and green moss. Then baked in the Georgia heat and humidity.
So.......the finished item can and may have cracks, bug holes, wood decay, nicks, marks, green moss and be discolored due to its exposure to nature over the years.
That is why....each wood item I make is so unique and one of a kind. They are different!! That is why you are buying it!!
I cant guarantee natures work. I can only assure you that when I am working on the wood all the skill and ability I have will go into what nature has provided me. My craftsmanship is in every piece I turn.
What happens after the piece is done in the mystery wood shop will be a mystery to all.
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEM YOU ARE LOOKING AT CAREFULLY AND STUDY THE PICTURES CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE. Remember what you see in the picture is what you get, minus color variation due to monitors and lighting conditions.
