WRC lumber pics
« on: June 25, 2016, 11:59:53 AM »
Thanks to the Canuckistanian dollar being so low compared to the US dollar, everything in Canada is on sale. Makes for busy Percy. My sons Warrens  new half built Specialty sawmill(pics to come) has no working edger yet, so Daddy's old WM edger come to the rescue. His new to him,boglie band saw cuts flitches up to 6 feet wide. Has built in edger saw(splits flitch). Some of the pieces I edged were still too wide to efficiently process so the crew and I did alot of skilsawing >:( >:( not much fun but had to get the product out. WRC is a beauticful wood and we were targeting clears outta high dollar logs. Margins are skinny but 10% of 50,000.00 is much more than 10% of 10,000.00 so we go for the high end stuff. THis is pics of approximately 12,000 bdft of clear lumber...its different than the Eastern red cedar I seen in another thread here but similar as well. NOw that the project is complete< I have the "cedar snotts" real bad... ;D ;D

I love the sight and smell of fresh cut cedar but the dust can be irritating. ;D

I sure wish WRC grew here in Wisconsin. We used it for board and bat siding on our house back in 1972 and still have it. When the lumber arrived it was fresh and a  little water would show around the nail when driven. I loved the smell.

I wish any "RED" cedar grew here.

There's some ERC in the Southern part of the state, but not much, and not very big!

Thanks for the comments guys. WRC is a nice wood, the best logs are found in the coastal climate. THere is interior WRC but the farther east you go, the more it is likely to have rot in anything over 15 inches diameter. We are lucky to have it here. on the other side of the coin, I have never cut an oak log in 20 years of milling, and only one soft maple from a tree that came from downtown main street. Had more metal in it than an Ozzy Osbourne concert. Birch , Alder, and Cottonwood(poplar) are the main hardwoods up here and only a small percentage compared to softwoods.

Nice lumber, clear WRC is tough to find anymore, it looks like you have a nice niche market there.   Very organized storage.
Eastern Red Cedar is a Juniper not even in the same family as Western Red Cedar. Pretty but totally different then any of the true cedars.

That's an impressive a pile of WRC lumber. Congrats on dialing in your market there.

Anything special a man should know about sawing WRC? I have a mobile job tomorrow where I'll be sawing WRC logs that are left over from a log home build. I saw plenty of ERC, but WRC logs don't often find their way to Mississippi. I don't reckon I've ever laid eyes on one.

Its fairly nice cutting wood. The wider the cut, the more set you need. The wood is fairly stable and doesnt move much when cutting. Avoid the pith as there are surprize rotspots more than occasionally. The blades get dull a little quicker than cutting spruce but slowing feed rate with a duller blade keeps cut straight. The dust smells nice and for the most part, wont bother you on occasional cuts but over the years, an allergy can happen as it did with me. REactions are major runny nose/sneezing and can cause serious wheezing/coughing/shortness of breath. Best to wear a mask if it is hot dry and dusty when you cut. When its raining here, I cut without reaction.
