I have a bunch of cedar from a pergola I had to take down. Several really long straight boards. The bottom posts were rotting. The wood is cracked a little on the surface. Is the wood usable for anything, or worth anything? I might have 100lbs+ in the wood.

Depends on the type pf cedar. If Aromatic Red Cedar from the New England area I would use chest liners, small boxes, Panels in chests. If it’s any other cedar, small boxes, picture frames, planter boxes, I like to use the aromatic cedar for cedar chests, or slide trays.

Have your say...
