Alaskan Yellow Cedar is fine textured, light colored and turns a beautiful silver gray. It is also the most naturally moisture tolerant species. The various physical properties of the wood make it an attractive material for both general construction and boat building. Due to its slow growth, it is hard and, like other cypress woods it is durable; it, therefore, offers good dimensional stability and is resistant to weather, insects, and contact with soil.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar turns and carves quite well, making these materials easily manipulated by hand or machine tools, and can be fastened to a surface with glues, screws, and nails. It’s texture, uniform color and straight grain will take a fine finish. Alaskan Yellow Cedar Shingles is the most naturally moisture tolerant wood species available. It resists splintering and wears smoothly over time. Along with its range of resistance qualities, yellow cedar is also impervious to harmful and unattractive mold growth and decay — as Alaskan Yellow Cedar ages, it naturally releases tannins and oils that prevent these unwanted growths from forming.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar is typically recognized by its fine-textured appearance and light coloring. Over time, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, when exposed to direct sunlight and other outdoor elements, will evolve from its natural light coloring to a distinguishable, beautiful silver gray. When freshly cut, Alaskan Yellow Cedar has a somewhat unpleasant bitter scent, but when seasoned it has barely any discernible scent, hence its traditional use in face masks.
