Yellow Cedar

One of the most valued timbers in the world. Those craftsmen who have worked with it have all come back for more. The moderate hardness and extraordinary evenness of grain makes it easy to work with. Yellow cedar gives a silky smooth knife finish, it’s simply a delight to work with. It is easy to glue and nails and screws hold well. It is extremely dimensionally stable and durable, the timber of choice for the temples of Japan, the oldest wooden structures in the world.

Sitka spruce

Famed for having the highest strength to weight ratio of all woods in the world, Sitka spruce firmly holds her ground as the unrivalled No.1 wood of choice for specialty applications such as yacht spars and vintage aircraft.  It is also the wood of choice for many of the world’s leading piano builders. They choose Sitka spruce for their sounding board, the soul of the piano. On the other end of the spectrum you find less seemingly less sophisticated applications such as bridge panels, helicopter pads and construction timbers but the unique and outstanding properties of Sitka spruce make it the wood of choice for these uses too.
