    Yes Mike and 50+ years ago I was driving log truck, more than half of our loads were off to China . The Chinese took the boat loads and sank the whole loads into the water for preservation. Many ship loads went there and now we are buying it all back?>>?

        Interesting. The carpenter's pencils that we get up here are very carefully 1/4" x 1/2" and made of cedar. There was a member of this parish who did carvings of trains in the leads of those pencils.
        I have trouble getting what I want in a cedar log.
