Appearance Grade Western Red Knotty Cedar Timbers

Product Description & Process

PowerWood produces and stocks a wide range of full size Appearance Grade Western Red Knotty Cedar Timbers from 3” thick x 4” wide through to 16” thick by 24” wide (and larger!).

Appearance quality timbers are cut from a mixture of old growth and mature second growth logs. Knotty timbers are the most challenging item to select and inventory. There is a fine balance between fiber quality, knot quality and the cost of the material. Many of the timbers we produce are used in rough out applications.

Because of all of these factors, we invest a lot of time and energy to ensure that all of our timbers ship out to customer specs. Each piece is double checked to ensure it matches the order prior to shipping.

PowerWood Appearance timbers are sold both as rough green and as custom dried or finished product to our distributors. Timbers are frequently used either rough or surfaced for feature applications in high end homes, institutions such as golf courses or hotels, outdoor shade structures, pergolas or in high end deck and fence applications.

The material manufactured at PowerWood is often dried to remove surface moisture and reduce checking and then surfaced smooth or re-sawn on all four sides for the best appearance possible.
