A Small Job
I turned the top of six posts this AM. The wood was western cedar 6x6x7 ft long. A friend has a sign company and i have probably turned 300 of these posts over the years. I charge a piece rate of $25 and it took me three hours including clean up. The cedar is a rather soft wood so my tools had to be razor sharp to avoid tear out on the end grain.I spent 1/2 hour sharpening.
