As one of the many who have become allergic to cedar dust, I must emphasize use all caution. Use a good dusk mask, connect a shop vac. to the power tool if used, then take a shower and wash clothing.

I still make WRC paddles using a band saw to rough out the blank (wearing mask) and then procede with only hand tools. The little to no sanding is done standing upwind and outdoors while wearing a dust mask. With those cautions I still make WRC paddles. So old soon, so smart so late.
