Western Red Cedar is, above all, a wood of exceptional beauty. In its natural, unfinished state, it has a richly textured, tactile grain combined with a palette of warm, mellow tones ranging from a light amber to a deep brown. No man-made material can duplicate the depth of cedar’s natural luster. It also remains subtly aromatic, and the characteristic fragrance of cedar adds another dimension to it’s universal appeal.
It’s the wood we love!
Western Red Cedar contains natural oils that act as preservative to help the wood resist insect attach and decay. It is also a dimensionally stable wood that lies flat and stays straight. It is a wood that ages gracefully and endures for many years. Western Red Cedar is the preferred material for all outdoors applications that seek visual harmony with the landscape, combined with stability and durability. Indoors, cedar’s dimensional stability makes it perfectly suited to high moisture areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and saunas. Western Red Cedar is a lightweight wood, easy to handle and install for both the professional and the do-it-yourselfer. Using either hand or machine tools, the wood can be cut, shaped, planed, sanded, nailed and glued easily. It is free of pitch and resin and it finished to a richly glowing surface that can be enhanced with transparent, semi-transparent or full bodied stains or paints.
WESTERN RED CEDAR IS A RENEWABLE RESOURCE.
