Manufactured from logs containing only live knots, PowerWood Select Tight Knot (STK) Cedar is 100% tight knot, allowing no holes or knots that will become holes during manufacture.
Our STK is custom cut at a sawmill where we target quality knot structure and long tallies. It is then dried to an average moisture content of 19% or less. Tight knot needs to be carefully dried as the knots can become very brittle if dried too fast or too low. After drying, all of the STK we produce is graded for a second time and trimmed to remove splits and other defects.
