Indulge in handcrafted Cedar

Atlantic white cedar, locally known as "juniper", is found in the acidic swamplands of the eastern coastal area of the United States. The history of harvesting this aromatic and durable wood dates to the pre-colonial era, with the industry experiencing steady growth as more and more uses for this versatile commodity developed. In colonial times, cedar was used for buckets, ship planking and furniture. The largest use of Atlantic white cedar prior to the Civil War was the manufacture of shingles, which were exported from Norfolk, Virginia to overseas ports. Later uses included cabinetry, washing machines, freezers and wood siding, with the invention of the cedar shad boat becoming an innovation for the Dare County, North Carolina fisherman. Atlantic white cedar is a renewable resource and efforts have been made for responsible harvesting, restoration and replanting of white cedar wetlands across the Eastern United States.

 

Why choose cedar?

Cedar furniture weathers to a beautiful, silver gray patina during the first few months of exposure to sunlight. Although not necessary, the application of a penetrating water repellent will never hurt your furniture.

With reasonable care, your carefully crafted cedar furniture will provide 20 to 25 years of comfort and attractive durability.

The overall tendency of cedar products is to resist checking, splintering, rot and insect infestation.

 

About finishing:

Cedar furniture requires no finishing unless it is to be exposed to severe winter climates. In that case, we recommend the application of a reputable. penetrating water repellent.
   

If you choose to use your cedar pieces indoors, shield them from stains and skin oils by applying a protective finish. We suggest multiple applications of a quality polyurethane to enhance the beauty and ensure durability of your cedar furniture.
