Our Cedar Wood Products

 

There are some natural characteristics to cedar wood. It's part of the reason we chose cedar for our furniture, we feel this adds to the beauty of the piece, and gives and important connection to the natural world. It also means each piece is individual with it's own character.

It is important to be aware of what characteristics exposed Cedar wood may display, these are not defects or faults but make each item stand out as a unique piece with a lineage far beyond its finished product.

  • What may appear to be an irregularity in the grain is the natural formation of the timber.

  • Dark or light ‘cracks’ that show within the grain are likely to be mineral deposits. These appear as the tree takes its nutrients from the water table and where minerals are then bought into the tree and settle within its grain.

  • As well as being visible as lines within the grain some minerals can deposit as smaller dots within the grain in a lighter, chalky colour.

  • Their may also be variations in the colour from product to product as different timbers can have unique shades
