Although Port Orford Cedar is not a true cedar it does possess a fantastic fragrant scent when sawn, a bit spicier but similar to the smell of aromatic cedar.

Port Orford Cedar is favored by the Japanese for its wonderful workability. It was and still is often used in their furniture and temples.

Perhaps its biggest claim to fame is its use in timber framing, held by some to be the best wood for the job.

Oregon Cedar is also frequently used in guitar building. It finishes beautifully and produces a great sound

We have in stock several tractor trailer loads of salvaged logs just waiting to be cut. Feel free to give us a call if you need specific dimensions for your next project. 1-888-814-0007

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
