It cleans up nicely and is really beautiful. The smell is the same as construction lumber which reminds me of something a little sweet & sour mixed with something musty. Definteily difficult to describe.
After that I needed to start making a jig for a modified box cut. Of course even though I seemingly have tons of odds & ends for hardware, I lacked a thick enough bolt, so I'll need a trip to the hardware store to complete that.
So not huge progress, but getting there little by little.
