Rustic Performance

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.

 

Types of Cedar

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.
