    Q:Is this wood 100% natural cedar? i.e. The same as purchasing a 2x4x6....except it's rough sawn and might need to be jointed and planed? Looking to potentially use these to build a playhouse and want to ensure no chemicals are being used.

      A:  Harry, These backer rails are not treated. These are made of Cedar that can naturally stand up to the elements, insects, decay, warping and splitting. These backer rails can also be sanded then painted or stained to compliment your exterior.

        A:  Hi Harry. Thank you for shopping at The Home Depot. According to the manufacturer, this is a natural untreated rough sawn western red cedar, which naturally stands up to the elements, insects, decay, warping and splitting. Please let us know if we can be of any additional service. Rick_HD_OC

        Answer This Question

        A:  Mike, These are designed to be used as backer rails to build new or repair an existing fence panel. This product has not been tested on how much weight it can hold to be used as making outdoor furniture.

          A:  The cedar wood is rough so if you do not mind that finish and the size works for your project, I don't see why you could not use it to replace components of your outdoor furniture. After all, it is meant to be used outdoors in the elements.

            Great rails for a rustic look, weather resistant fence. I originally used 3 of the 6 foot rails, spaced horizontally, for each section, between two of the cedar 4x4 posts with the gothic top. I stained them all with transparent cedar natural tone stain (also avail. at HD) before even putting them up. They withstood our rugged northern Michigan winter; even the boards near the road stood up to our snow plows. I've gotten lots of compliments on the fence and the shade garden that it protects. This summer, I added 2 more rails between each section, as well as a gated section, to keep the deer herd from sticking their heads into the garden and chewing off my flower buds. Recommend.

              Beautiful boards
              Better than expected. I ordered for building a garden bench - and ordered extras for this reason. The boards I received were straight and flat. I found on small crack and a couple of other small edge dings - normal stuff for this kind of wood. But - overall - beautiful, dry, straight and flat. My bench turned out beautiful & perfect. Also, the price point is great.

                Dear Vmotor, thank you for letting Outdoor Essentials know about your frustrating experience with our wood fence pickets. While we like to think of the naturally occurring, unique characteristics of each piece of wood as its story – not as its defects – we also understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As wood dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length as well as it may split, cup and warp. If you would like the opportunity to discuss the issue further, please reach out to us at CustomerService@OutdoorEssentialProducts.com, referencing this review, and one of our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.

                  Dear Joe, thank you for letting Outdoor Essentials know about your frustrating experience with the selection of wood fence backer rail that your local store has in stock. We do value you as a customer and can assure you that our backer rails are normally of excellent quality. However, as wood dries, it may split, cup and warp, which are natural occurrences of wood. If you are still in need of backer rails, please see a Pro Associate at your local store for product availability or the possibility of completing a special order for what you need. If there is anything that we, as the manufacturer, can do regarding the backer rails, please contact us at CustomerService@OutdoorEssentialProducts.com, and one of our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.

                  The wood sent to me was hand selected and without damage. I appreciate the thoughtful selection of what was sent and will use this group again.
