Western Red Cedar Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Western Red Cedar grows in the Pacific Northwest USA and along the Pacific Coast to Alaska. It is also called Canoe Cedar, Giant Arborvitae, Shinglewood, and Pacific Red Cedar, and is produced principally in Washington, followed by Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.
The heartwood of Western Red Cedar is reddish or pinkish brown to dull brown, and the sapwood, which is narrow - often less than 2cm wide, is nearly white.
The wood is generally straight grained and Western Red Cedar veneer has a uniform but rather coarse texture.
