Product Overview

This Weyerhaeuser 2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. Rough Green Western Red Cedar Lumber is a unique and prestigious softwood with outstanding physical characteristics. It offers a rare combination of aesthetic appeal and durability, thanks to its natural decay-resistant composition. Western Red Cedar's superior dimensional stability means that, when properly installed and maintained, project components are likely to stay straight and flat, and resist warping and cupping - season after season. In addition, cedar is easy to cut, saw, and nail with common tools.

what is the exact measurement of a 2x4x8'

Asked by: darren
According to the specifications listed it is 1.75 X 3.75 inches X 8 feet long which sounds right for a rough cut 2X4. A standard 2X4 is 1.5 X 3.5 inches.

would this be a good wood to use for a picnic table?

Asked by: jap58
Problem is that cedar is a soft wood and will get nicks and dents easily for a table.

does this lumber need to dry out before use?

While it may be called 'green' there is no need to let it dry out. I always install it right away.

Customer Reviews

2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. Rough Green Western Red Cedar Lumber is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am baffled by the one star rating that is showing up for this product. I have used these studs... I am baffled by the one star rating that is showing up for this product. I have used these studs many times over the years and I have always had good success. The biggest challenge with cedar can be if you are attempting to color match. Often times the colors of the different dimensional lumber types is significant (i.e., a pile of 2x4's vs. a pile of 4x4's vs. 2x6's). But then again - it's cedar, not some artificial product.
