One of the teachers at the blind center said a neighbor had taken down a dead tree in his yard, and she brought me three branches. Would I like more?

I brought it home without really looking at it much. As soon as it hit the saw I knew it was cedar. However, it is the most violently purple red cedar I have ever seen...much brighter and darker than purpleheart, with the characteristic gold streaks and bands. Drop dead gorgeous. She came by and asked If I want more and I drooled all over her....the purple cedar is just about the most popular wood down at the center. I'm going to pick up a truckload tomorrow. I'll post pictures.
