Product Information:

Aromatic red cedar (Juniperus virginiana) is a soft wood with aroma that is a natural repellent to moths and insects. Sapwood is white to cream and is intermixed and contrasts with the salmon to dark red of the heartwood. Expect tight, closed knots throughout the material. Aromatic red cedar is easy to work and it reportedly has a high silica content, which can dull cutters. Aromatic red cedar glues and finishes well, though in many applications, the wood is left unfinished to preserve its aromatic properties. Some common uses for aromatic red cedar include fence posts, closet and chest linings, carvings, outdoor furniture, pencils, bows, and small wooden specialty items. This stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock, sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" grain runs with the longest dimension. USA.

  • Birdhouses for Beginners (And Others) - Some of the most popular small projects for spring involve birds. Housing and feeding our feathered pals are interesting processes.
  • SPOTLIGHT ON WESTERN RED CEDAR - Most of the cedar you’ll encounter for woodworking hails from the Pacifi c Northwest. In the trade it’s called western red cedar ( Thuja plicata). However, there are other cedars available, too, with a few variations between them, and, yet, they’re all in the same cypress family.
  • A tale of two cedars - Not unlike the masked Lone Ranger and his Spanish counterpart Zorro, there are two tree species from different geographic origins that hide their real identity. What they share is a desirable fragrance.
