Rustic Cedar Furniture Information
Cedar is the natural choice because of its beauty, practicality and durability. Our manufacturer uses only
the finest cedar to create furniture that lasts for generations. It is naturally resistant to decay, insect and
weather damage. Because of this superior resistance, cedar is frequently used for outdoor fencing, and
siding on homes. Cedar has an exceptionally high strength-to-weight ratio, which means that it is both
durable and easy to move about. It does not shrink or warp as many other woods commonly do. Unlike
pressure-treated wood furniture, our manufacturer uses no chemical preservatives that may be harmful to
your family's health.
We offer two types of cedar -- Northern White Cedar for our indoor and outdoor furniture for its creamy
white color and enduring strength, and Western Red Cedar for our outdoor garden products such as
arbors and trellises. When left untreated, over time white cedar weathers gracefully to a silvery gray, or it
can be stained to match any décor.
All cedar log furniture is subject to the natural process of checking as the wood "seasons". Checking
occurs as wood releases moisture across or through the annual growth rings and it does not affect the
structural performance or integrity of the wood.
How to Care for your Cedar Furniture
Northern White and Western Red Cedar are some of the most sought-after woods that are ideal for many
outdoor and indoor uses. It is a fine grained wood that is durable and resistant to rotting and insects.
Because cedar is a top choice for carefree living, it can be left natural or it can be painted or stained to
match any decor.
Left untreated, both Western Red and Northern White Cedar will weather to a beautiful soft silver gray.
Untreated cedar is natural and pleasing, however, the wood is porous and over the long term may become
discolored if left in damp or shaded areas. A 20 percent solution of household bleach in water with one
ounce of detergent per gallon will usually remove the stain. Even after years of exposure, cedar can be
refinished to its natural bright clean appearance.
If you opt to stain your cedar furniture, there are a wide variety of penetrating stains. We recommend
Penofin(r). because it is formulated to enhance the natural beauty of the wood and will keep it looking that
way. Some stains also have water repellant additives and mildew inhibitors. Penetrating stains go into the
wood without forming a surface barrier. This eliminates the problems of blistering and peeling of painted
surfaces. They work well on wood with knots and deep surface texture. Whichever stain you opt to use,
please follow the manufacturer's directions for a successful application.
If you decide to paint cedar, the natural color and grain of the wood will be concealed. So many great
colors are now available to accent your decor. Our furniture is also popular with artists who paint flowers,
natural scenes, or whimsical patterns right on the furniture. Follow the directions on the manufacturer's
product for the best application methods.
