I am looking for ideas to utilize some very wide old growth yellow cedar boards. They are beautiful in that they are very fine grain, uniform in texture and colour and stable (and great to work). But the same characteristics also make they very plain (no figure etc.)
The only decent idea I have is to make native style square boxes with either carved or appled native art.
I have things I can make if I cut them up but I can't bring myself to rip them.
As a piece of wood most people (wood workers anyway) think they are wonderful. Any ideas how that could be retained in a piece of furnture.
