Western red cedar saw logs

Recommended Posts

Hi 

looking to try and get some Western red cedar saw logs to mill, Not looking for a huge quantity as only needing  to get enough sawn to do a 8x6 double skinned structure. Based up in Aberdeenshire but can get storage for logs down in Dunfermline. 
cheers

Speak to Mark Councill at Logie Timber. They might have some left from two loads I arranged for them last year. Say that Jonathan Robinson sent you!

Was  hoping you’d chip in as I recall on a number of occasions you’ve commented on what decent stuff it is to work with.

I know of some DF, bit over sized though. :D 

Can’t go wrong with Douglas Andy  for a multitude of jobs. I’m after the cedar for a possible wood burning Sauna build

Was only messing, as you where asking for a use for your Dougie. :D 

 

Your build sounds good. Looking forward to seeing the build. 

 

Whats the reason for needing Western Red Cedar in particular? I know Cedar smells amazing, was grinding a few stumps out a while ago and was like perfume.

Lol well the mrs says my sense of humour is shite too 🤷‍♂️
just been doing a bit of research for a while and cedar seems to be the preferred wood, mind you I’ve been in a few in Finland and am pretty sure they just used common local timbers. Decent day for outdoors stuff so steady away cutting for the new log store, did a fair bit of chain morticer work and been trying a few different methods for the tenons. One in pics was done with a saw for the shoulder and a router and a long cutter to remove most of the material which seems to be working well with the freshly milled Douglas. Better than my efforts with a chisel for sure.
