My friend Dave has a property on Lillooet Lake. A 40-foot log washed up on his boat ramp after a storm, so we decided to deal with it.

Once we got the log into a good area so it could be milled, I decided to cut it in half and make mostly boards out of it.

After the first cut, I could see how very dry the wood was, and could see I had some real nice wood to work with.

Cedar is a beautiful wood that lasts a long time. It is prized for decks, fencing and other outdoor applications because of its resistance to bugs and rot. Just look at that expanse of clean, tight grain!

Once I started milling, some of the boards I produced were 20’ long and over 12” wide.

After I milled the Cedar, I carefully stacked it on Dave’s trailer for storage then covered the pile up so it would stay dry.
