WR Cedar, Select Grade, S1S2E, 1" thick

Usually ships in 3 to 5 business days.


Product Description


Select kiln-dried Western Red Cedar lumber board for those that prefer the rustic knots. Ideal for garden beds.  This board is an actual 7/8" thick board in an STK Grade (Select Tight Knot) allowing for tight knots and graded on the rough side. This style Cedar board is often used for siding and fencing, among other exterior projects.  Boards are kiln-dried.  This material is S1S2E (surfaced 1 side and 2 edges) meaning one side (face) is left rough, and the other side and edges are planed smooth. The rough side is often preferred as being exposed for its rustic appearance, but either or both sides can be visible. 


Western Red Cedar is a softwood known for its stability, straight grain and durability in exterior climates. This lumber is naturally resistant to rot and decay without any treatment. Western Red Cedar is normally reddish-brown in color.  Color can vary from board to board.  This wood ages to a natural silver-gray color when left unfinished outdoors. Western Red Cedar is very popular to use in exterior projects like decks, garden beds, arbors, fences, shingles, and siding to name just a few. This wood is sometimes favored over treated yellow pine for exterior projects due to it being lighter and more stable. But Cedar does have acid properties which can be corrosive to some metals, therefore copper, stainless steel or galvanized nails or screws should be used.

  1. Good quality and careful packaging

    Posted by E. G. on 14th Feb 2021

    I ordered three pieces of 1x8 cedar lumber from the Total Wood Store because I do not want to visit the local lumberyard in person due to the pandemic. The purchase cost and shipping of this item were on the high side. However, I was pleasantly surprised when FedEx ground dropped the package near my door. The lumber was protected with cardboard pieces along all edges inside the outer cardboard box. I ordered lumber online from other lumberyards in the past, and the lumber never arrived protected this way. I will likely order more lumber from Total Wood Store if the pandemic will not subside soon.
