Cedar Door

On a previous post from February 2016 I showed some lumber I had milled with my new bandsaw mill. Just after that post I milled a larger tree that produced boards that were 8 feet long (2.4 m), 18 inches (45.5 cm) wide and 2 inches (5 cm) thick. The lumber has air dried so I made a door from 2 pieces joined together making a 6.5′ (1.98 m) x 36″ (91 cm) x 2 inch (5 cm) red cedar door.  It is treated with tung oil that brings out it’s beautiful colour and grain.

Sword Ferns (Polystichum munitum)

The sword ferns are in their prime right now and look magnificent. Their fronds are close to four feet long and stand tall and fresh looking.  There are areas in our forest where we can look 500 feet in all directions and it is a sea of ferns.  As the season progresses they will start to droop and become more of a ground cover.
