Commonly known as Eastern Red Cedar, this wood has a strong and distinctive aroma. It is soft with a fine even texture. The trees are very slow growing and most that are harvested tend to be small in diameter. This results in boards that are often narrow and knotty.

  1. Random widths from 3–10 inches wide.
  2. Surfaced on two sides (S2S) with rough edges.
  3. Forty-eight inches long or less to optimize shipping costs.
  4. Best price on Red Cedar we offer!
  5. Select and Better (Sel&Btr) grade.

What is a Board Foot?

A board foot (bdft.) is a standard of measurement equal to one square foot that is one inch thick. This measurement is used to measure the volume of lumber.

You can order RedCedar wood by the board foot above or choose the exact size you need.

What is 4/4?

When lumber is cut at a lumber mill, the thickness is traditionally measured in quarters of an inch. For example, 4/4 equates to 1 inch and 8/4 equates to 2 inches thick.

When you order RedCedar lumber from us, it is surfaced on both sides (S2S), resulting in a loss of about 3/16 of an inch in thickness.

4/4 lumber will come surfaced to 13/16" thick, and 8/4 to 1 & 13/16".

After sanding or shaping, you should be left with about 3/4" workable material.

Looking for thinner material? See Project Ready wood.

What does S2S mean?

S2S means the lumber will be surfaced on two sides—it is planed smooth on the top and bottom face but not sanded. The edges are left rough.

All S4S and S2S lumber is planed but not sanded. It will need sanding before a finish can be applied.

Looking for sanded, ready-to-go wood? See Project Ready wood.

Is the wood clear?

All our Lumber is Select and Better (Sel&Btr) grade unless otherwise specified. Select and Better is the highest grade available.
Most pieces will be 83% to completely clear. Small peices are usually completely clear, while larger pieces might have small defects or a few sound knots.
