I’m wondering if anyone knows of a reliable source of high quality, vertical grain Western Red Cedar in or near (within 20 miles, or so of) Seattle. I’m finding it a really hit and miss proposition so far. I’ve used Blackstock Lumber downtown, Issaquah Cedar, and a cedar place up in Mt. Vernon, but none is consistent. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
Ivar’s Salmon House on Lake Union
is made almost entirely out of cedar I think
I’ve eaten there enough times to know that it could be tough to get in and out in a stealthy manner with a chainsaw. But hey…I’ll give it a try. Keep your eyes peeled for the police reports in the P.I.
Haven’t bought any in a while
but about a year ago I had good luck with BMC, which is about a quarter mile from Issaquah Lumber on East Lake Sammamish parkway.
Plug in a zip code and see what happens: may at least give you some places to call. (I have no connection to these people; just preparing to buid a pergola myself.)
Keep ‘em comin’!
I’m appreciating and checking on all of your suggestions. Thank you!
It is Issequah cedar and lumber, they have good stuff, not cheap but good. I pickup a couple every time I am in the Seattale area.
These guys are wholesalers…
…but maybe they will sell to you. My friend who designs and builds high-end furniture buys his wood from them.
