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.

Build a Raised Garden Bed

Asked by crostina September 9, 2015

I believe it’s only prop 65 due to sawdust. Unfortunately, 65 does not require disclosing the specific ingredients/risks. Plus products not sold in California don’t have to be labeled at all. We need both better disclosure and and actual protection (like get lead out of power cables) Here the wood is “green” ie not totally dry. This means as it dries out it will move around. “Rough” is roughly cut, won’t be all smooth and there may be big saw marks. In a raised bed these are fine. Another kind of wood to look for is “kiln dried”. This means the wood will be dry and no chemicals. It won’t move as much. This will look natural colored Avoid “pressure treated” = chemicals to make it better in different ways. This will have a kind of green color in person.

does this lumber need to dry out before use?

Yes, however how much depends upon your climate. In a dry climate like Colorado I highly recommend it---the boards will shrink and potentially warp. In a highly humid climate not sure it's necessary. I'd focus on good quality, straight boards.

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

I wouldn't recommend. It's raw and unfinished.

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.

Quality was certainly excellent but the dimensions weren't typical nominal. 2 X 4's are usually 1.5" X 3.5" but these are 1.75" X 3.75" so I could not use them in my project as they wouldn't fit the brackets I was using.
