 Western red cedar

For centuries, carpenters and craftsmen valued Western Red Cedar for its natural beauty and durability. The red cedar we use is from Western Canada, where logging is regulated to ensure the resource is sustained.

Western Red cedar is popular most of all for its appearance and durability. Its fine, straight grain, outstanding strength/weight ratio and low rate of expansion and contraction make it a much sought-after species. It is an environmentally-friendly product since it does not need to be treated. Red cedar contains natural oils that make it resistant to moisture, insects and decay. As well, it is highly resistant to warping and cracking.
