The weather was pretty wild wet and windy today so I finished off a little stool made out of Yew with Hazel legs. I left a little stub from a branch on one leg to give a bit of character, the Yew looked like it was on fire, with all the vibrant colours in the grain after it was oiled and waxed . Some Cedar puzzled me with the way it was drying out with a yellow band down the centre.
On closer inspection I realised that this part has a very pungent scent so I reckoned this must be cedar oil that's gives the yellow colour. So I hacked out some cedar nuggets taking advantage of the glorious scent for putting in drawers and wardrobes, its still blowing and lashing down as I write this.Take a gander at my rainy day's work:)
