Product Overview

Every piece of cedar meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. Cedar is renowned for its appearance, stability, durability and weather resistance. Ideal for a variety of applications and outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. Cedar's natural oils and preservatives fight off weather, bugs, fungi and algae; and if desired, allow excellent absorption of stains and paint. Tannish brown in color, the grain pattern is tight with few knots.

Plant Shelf of Cedar ¾” x 3” x 8’ The cedar was soft and easy to work (with two sides milled; two sides rough) even though I lacked a table saw (recommended). I needed to select boards that were true and free of splits or large knots. I cut 4 upright legs and enough cleats for shelves and sanded all surfaces. I used Deckmate deck screws #8 1 1/4" coated but #6 deck screws might be sufficient and less likely to split wood. I took care not to split the ends when screwing shelf cleats to uprights. I used Titebond III Ultimate wood glue but any good quality wood glue may work. My shelves feature 24” x 6” porcelain tile (LifeProof “Shadow Wood” at Home Depot but several other wood-grain choices would have worked). I used two LIGHT coats of wood stain (Behr Premium stain and sealer) to match porcelain tile color, leaving wood grain to show. I found plans using a search engine for images (plant shelf) to find a suitable size and style, adopting it to my needs. I bought all supplies from Home Depot. This was a present to my wife and replaced a rusting plant shelf. I am not a carpenter and this challenged my wood working skills, but it was worth it because the cedar was so easy to use.
