I don't think Witco used cedar, I read that they used another type of wood that is not widely available like it was back then. It was something unusual, like cyprus or sycamore or something. Maybe it was in one of BigBro's books that I saw that, I'll have to go back and look. The marlin I have that was done by Ken is cedar, plus I have a couple of carvings by Bosko that are cedar. They both got a lot deeper cuts into the grain than I did and they are much smoother too. I'm going to test a power washer, I'm thinking that when the wood gets wet it softens the wood between the grain and gives it that deeper "cut". I'll try to borrow my neighbor's washer tomorrow and give it a try.
