Western Red Cedar Clear and Better - Planed All Round Timber
Western Red Cedar stands out as one of the best timbers you can buy, not only is it highly durable, it looks brilliant. The timber’s vivid array of colours ranges from light orangey red to a deeper purplish red and they make for a vibrant display.
At home when used internally and externally, Western Red Cedar has many uses, which include exterior cladding, greenhouses, sheds, bee-hives, shingles and light construction. One of the most popular uses for Canadian Cedar is fence slats, they provide an ideal, contemporary garden screen which allows sunlight through to brighten up your garden.
The clear and better grade, that Planed Western Red Cedar is provided in, has minimal knots and any knots that are found will be small. Our planed Cedar is ready for you to work with, however, bear in mind that the wood is acidic and tends to corrode ferrous metals – Stainless steel or silicone bronze fixings are recommended.
When working out prices for planed Western Red Cedar please enter your exact finished sizes as this is what we will plane down to. The plane will leave you with a smooth finish along the sides and faces of the boards while the ends will be left with a rough sawn finish and the boards as a whole will be slightly over length ready for you to cut down.
For the best value please enter your exact lengths don’t order overlength to cut into two pieces that you will use. This is because it is more likely for the one board to be more expensive than the two individual shorter pieces.
At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest % of usable Western Red Cedar Planed Timber possible from your delivery.
