Our Cedar Story

When our founder observed the large amount of cedar that was being lost in the lumber mill process, he took action to rescue that material and put it to good use. Trim end pieces that were being scrapped are now collected and graded, edge glued and then planed into the smooth panels used to make our planters.

Rescued cedar panels and posts are engineered to be stronger than raw cedar because the defects are removed from the wood during the grading and edge gluing process.

CedarCraft is the only brand of Western Red Cedar planters that utilize these high quality rescued cedar panels.  Our products are beautifully engineered, easy to assemble and built to last.
