  • Cedar Fret Project

    I'm working on a wolf fret project cut from 1/2" aromic cedar, this is the 1st time using this type of wood, a guy I work with donated it to me, since is was free I couldn't turn it down. What should I do to finish it? I have some deft spray on the shelf, also some watco danish oil. Keeping cedar smell is not important. Any help well appreciated.

    I would soak it in some lemon oil and after a couple of days shoot it with the Deft spray lacquer....my two cents worth .........MB .........

      ..Dependingon the age of the cedar there MIGHT be too much oil left in it to hold the deft spray....(might bubble or blister as the oil comes to the surface ...i DID have that experience long ago when we used cedar to line a closet..(.not scroll sawing.)..don't know how long it would take for this to happen...our closet started reacting in less than a year and continued til the home was sold 6-8 years later.
      This cedar was actual lumber purchased from a lumber yard, don't know what drying methods were used on it in those days.

        I work alot with cedar and I always finish with Formby's Tung Oil. I brings out the natural colors of cedar real well.

          Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
          This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

          I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
          Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
