Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar
Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata). The giant Aborvitae or Red Cedar is naturally sustainable timber, light and relatively easy to work. Straight grained, rather coarse and shows distinct growth rings. The timber is relatively soft when dried, therefore care is required during construction. The fresh timber has a pleasant smell which gradually disappears over time as the timber dries. The colour when dry becomes an even, warm mid brown. With exposure to weathering it becomes silver grey on the surface.
