A few facts about Cedar Wood Signs

 

 

  • In the United States, there are 3 main varieties of cedar: Incense Cedar, Western Red Cedar, and Eastern Red Cedar.
  • The Incense Cedar is mainly used in the manufacturing of pencils.
  • Eastern Red Cedar is also known as Aromatic Cedar.
  • Western Red Cedar is often used for building decks and siding.
  • The oil found in cedar is a natural insect repellant. This oil is only found in the reddish heartwood of the trees.
  • The Ancient Egyptians used oil extracted from cedar trees in the mummification process. The natural properties of the oil helped keep tombs insect free.
  • Native Americans similarly used cedar oil to repel mosquitoes and other small pests.
  • The Native Americans also built many of their canoes out of cedar.
  • Cedar trees are native to the Western Himalayan Mountains.
  • Many guitar soundboards are made out of Western Red Cedar and the necks are made of Spanish cedar.
  • Cedar was often used in the crafting of boats. It is said that Alexander the Grate’s boats were made from cedar.
  • In the Bible, cedar was imported for the construction of King Solomon’s temple.
  • Cedarwood is naturally resistant to water rot.
  • Cedar is lightweight and easy to work.  Most woodworking operations are considered easy to perform with cedar.
  • Cedar trees are commonly used in landscaping projects due to the pleasant aroma they release.

 

This list is just a few of the many interesting facts and historical uses for one of the world’s most versatile trees, and why I chose Cedar over other woods when possible. The spar - polyurethane adds to the luster and brings out the beautiful wood grain. However, it is not truly needed. In addition, I do not use paint on my signs but ink. Ink is also water resistant.

 

Please remember wood is a natural product. Variations in grain, texture, knots, and color are part of woods beauty.
