Benefits of White Cedar Furniture
Cedar is the natural choice because of its beauty, practicality and
durability. We use only the finest cedar to create furniture that
lasts for generations. It is naturally resistant to decay, insect
and weather damage. Because of this superior resistance, cedar is
frequently used for outdoor fencing, and siding on homes. Cedar has
an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio, which means that it
is both durable and easy to move about. It does not shrink or warp
as many other woods commonly do. Unlike pressure-treated wood
furniture, we use no chemical preservatives that may be harmful to
your family's health.
We use two types of cedar -- Northern White Cedar for our indoor
and outdoor furniture for its creamy white color and enduring
strength, and Western Red Cedar for our outdoor garden products
such as arbors and trellises. When left untreated, over time white
cedar weathers gracefully to a silvery gray, or it can be stained
to match any décor.
All cedar log furniture is subject to the natural process of
checking as the wood "seasons". Checking occurs as wood releases
moisture across or through the annual growth rings and it does not
affect the structural performance or integrity of the wood.

All log furniture is subject to the natural process of checking
(cracks or splits in wood). Checking happens as wood releases
moisture, and normally occurs across or through the annual growth
rings. It is the usual result of wood seasoning. Checking occurs
only on the surface of the wood, and does not affect the structual
performance or integrity of the wood.
