Re: Material: 5/4 Rough Western Red Cedar -- best

Now I use tongue depressors, cheap by the box of 1000.

Bill-
I use tongue depressors for some jobs as well, though I haven't found a cheap source for them yet.
I have a few tongue depressors with 'sharpened' square or skew chisel ends for cleaning up excess epoxy filleting mix after the rounded tool has shaped the fillet. I got that idea from Sergei deJonge, the luthier - it's a great way to clean up glue squeezeout from beside guitar braces. Any stick will do, sometimes longer and narrower work better.
I prefer a square end on mixing sticks to get into the 'corners' of the mixing container.
