Western red cedar is a wonderful material to work with; soft, forgiving and aromatic. Having said this….making Shakes is a labour of love!
The rounds of cedar are quartered, then each Shake is riven using a very simple tool called a Froe.
The Shake is then moved onto the shave horse for “dressing” (fine adjustments and chamfer)
The perfect alternative roofing tile or decorative feature.
