    Any smell to it? Red oak smells acidic from the tannins. Ash doesn't

    MMMM........forbidden tannins. Western redcedar has plenty to go around, although I think WRC gets its sweet smell from another component in its makeup. The bitter acidic taste is definitely the tannins though.

    Better but I still can't see the growth rings too well. Is this an open grained wood or closed grain like pine?

    I've cut up cedar that looked like that grain...but if that was cedar you'd know right off by the smell.
