Western Red Cedar has a direct and simple beauty that needs little in terms of treatment or finish but always gives a sense of craft. It is amazingly practical in that it is insect resistant and water resistant. It has utility in that it can be used in so many ways with such a wide variety of applications ranging from finished furniture to a durable exterior finish. It can be used as shingles, a dozen kinds of siding or milled to whatever one can imagine. It also has an innate beauty in its patterns, imperfections, grain patterns, and knots.
