ABOUT CEDAR WOOD:
Clear cedar is rough-sawn cedar that’s finished flat and clean. Reddish-brown swirls and knots make clear cedar an attractive trim material for interior decorating. Furniture makers use clear cedar for Adirondack chairs, tables and other outdoor furniture. Clear cedar sometimes appears on acoustical guitar soundboards. It has a pleasant aroma when cut.
Aromatic cedar produces the trademark scent prized by woodworkers for lining cedar chests, drawers and closets. The aromatic scent repels moths and produces that waft of clean, clear aroma every time you open the door. As a bonus, aromatic cedar holds up well in high-moisture environments such as saunas.
