White cedar

Recommended Posts

Just curious. I recently finished my first decoy. I used balsam, for ease of carving (knife and sandpaper is all I have), but after doing some research discovered this probably wasn' the best choice for wood. So, I've decided that for my next project I'd like to use white cedar ... I just have no idea where to get it. I'm up in Grand Forks but will be heading down to the cities over the holidays. Any advice is appreciated.

My dad just picked up 4" X 4" X 8' Long cedar post at lumber yard.

The one thing you will have to watch for are the growth rings. As you are carving one may be hard to carve through & the next one will be soft. The little that I helped with carving was one time you would have a hard time taking enough wood & the next time a big gouge. Keep in mind I'm more of a rookie carver & with practice it gets easier. Good luck & have fun.
