Cedar - Western Red

Much sought after because it 'weathers' to an attractive silver grey colour and does not require treatment in general applications.

Its straight grain and moderate hardness combine well to make it an excellent wood to work to very precise dimensions. Imported into the UK as 'shipping dry' (with moisture content as high as 70/80%) but Timbmet, with its hardwood culture, puts it on-stick to air dry prior to trading.
