Red Cedar!! What can you say. It has one of the more unique aromas that can be identified by almost anyone. Its coloration is dazzling and brilliant . I am fortunate to have access to this wood on occasion. I sometimes get the shavings and place them in bowls around my house. These items (although finished) still have a hint of that glorious scent only red cedar can produce. The bowl is 9.5 x 6.5 and the vase is 5.5 diameter by 6.75 inches tall.
