It has a fine texture and straight grain with growth rings often visible.


A durable yet soft timber, Western Red Cedar has good workability. It cuts, machines and glues well and can also be painted, stained and polished. It also nails and screws well, however if timber is damp it is corrosive to iron, so hot-dipped galvanized nails/screws should be used where required.

Western Red Cedar can be brittle along the end grain and sharp cutters are recommended due to its soft nature. Precautions should be taken when sanding Western Red Cedar as the sawdust can cause irritation for some people. It is not suitable for steam bending.
