Alaskan Yellow Cedar
AYC (Alaskan Yellow Cedar) is grown in the North Western part of North America from, southern Oregon to the southeastern parts of Alaska. Known for its yellow coloring and distinct smell, the highest concentration of this species is in southern Alaska. Naturally rot and insect resistant makes AYC very durable to weathering. Starting as a light yellow, the coloring darkens as it is exposed to light. If left out-doors it will turn to a grayish/silver over time. It is commonly used for the same applications as Western Red Cedar (siding, decking, flooring, and outdoor furniture). Due to not splintering, its stability and weather resistance, AYC is used for bleachers, benches, stage construction and marine applications.
Western Red Cedar
WRC (Western Red Cedar) is grown in the Pacific North West, including the western parts of Canada. Known for being naturally rot and insect resistant, makes WRC an ideal species of out-door use such as siding, fencing and trellises. Beginning as a beautiful, reddish to pink brown; WRC ages into a sleek silver as it weathers and adapts to its environment. WRC absorbs and releases moisture as its surrounding environment changes. With the ability to absorb and release moisture, WRC is resistant to warping, twisting and checking like other coniferous woods.
Douglas Fir is known for its warm and beautiful yellow, reddish coloring. Strong structural applications and workability makes Douglas Fir an ideal species for building structures and interior woodwork such as cabinets, doors, windows, and flooring.
PP (Ponderosa Pine) is grouped as a Western Yellow Pine with a medium density between hard and soft pines. With a yellowish white coloring PP is used in remanufacturing industries such as cabinets, doors, windows, molding, and wood packaging. Because of its cell structure and hardness, PP takes stains and finishes exceptionally well. Knotty Ponderosa is also used for interior woodworking, for a more rustic, country look and feel.
Eastern White Pine
EWP (Eastern White Pine) falls under the classification of Soft Pine or Pine with a lower density. The heartwood has a light brown with a hint of reddish tones. The sapwood is almost white with a pale-yellow tone, darkening with age. Thanks to sustainable forest management there is more Eastern White Pine in New England than there was in the 30’s. It is commonly used for walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, and millwork because of its fine grain and appearance.
Known for its fine grain, texture, and consistent white and gold coloring. Western Hemlock is used in many finish products such as doors, windows, molding, and flooring.
