BRRRR, it is firelog season again
What is all the hub bub about Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Not to worry we have no plans to quit on any of the other great products we carry, but beginning in March we are building a program around this great wood. Somewhat hard to find, stronger than Western Red Cedar, more rot and insect resistant and super tough. The best part is it is about 30% less expensive when compared to Western Red Cedar. We are currently stocking full rough sawn Appearance grade in 2×4, 2×5, 2×6,2×8,2×10,2×12, 4×4, 4×6, 5×5, 6×6, 8×8 and 6x12sizes, In surfaced material we have 2×2, 2×4, 2×6, 4×4 and 6×6. Also kiln dried rougher header knotty 4×4 and surfaced 4×4-8′ clear. 2×5-12′ tng car decking and 2×6 12′ and 16′ tng car decking. 15/16″ x 4,6 and 8″ widths for fencing or just high quality cedar boards. The full dimension sizes allow us to re manufacture this material to other sizes and profiles and we will develop some stock sizes and patterns as well. Most recently we received what the mill calls low grade in 4×4 and 2×3, it is very reasonably priced, cheaper than pressure treated lumber at $1.00/ft for 4×4 and $ .40/ft for 2×3. Both are full dimension rough and with the rot resistance of yellow cedar perfect for garden use.
