Milled up a large Deodar Cedar in Tunbridge Wells. its really beautiful timber and can be used outdoors or indoors. Traditionally it was used to line boxes, drawers and cupboards because it has a lovely fragrant aroma that lasts a long time compared to other timber fragrances . I cut some wide boards for furniture as well as narrow planks for some fencing.
Deodar Cedar is becoming one of my favourite timbers to mill! It is one of the best smelling timbers around and it doesn't seem to fade even after it is seasoned.
This tree had previously had some very harsh pruning on it and was a bit of an eyesore. The client decided to have it taken down but wanted to make use of the nice straight stem. After cutting the top slice it was decided that it was far to good to use for structural material. Instead, it was decided to mill it up with the intention of turning it into a large dining table or two!
Stacked up and ready for seasoning...
