 Yellow Cedar and Juniper Carving

This is the newest Scott Trim carving on the go.  The face is carved from
Yellow Cedar and the sun rays out of local Cariboo juniper.  

It hasn't been named yet, so if you have any great ideas, please pass them along......

Wood carving using Yellow Cedar

Wood Carving and Yellow Cedar

Yellow cedar is nice to carve with, it has a nice aroma and is a relatively easy to carve. This wood is soft and holds good detail and doesn't tear like red cedar wood.

Yellow cedar is commonly found west of the Coast Mountains in the mid and north coastal regions.  It is commonly found growing with hemlock at high elevations.

This wood is not that easy to come by.  It is very valuable because of it's resistance to decay and straight grain.  Yellow cedar is used extensively in boat building.

Juniper and Soapstone combined

This carving was a Christmas present for my mother-in-law.  As with all my carvings it's a one of a kind.  I did not know at
the time I did the carving that my mother-in-law had lost two children.  When she saw the carving she said to my wife "How did he know?  That's me and you three and the two I lost in the back"

Working in the shop today

Today I've got the stove going in the shop, it's -20 outside.  So nice to have some warmth out there.

I am working on more shaving soap dishes for my wifes soap business.
