Old Adirondack Dog Bed Large. Northern White Cedar is one of Natures unsurpassed building materials. Light, sturdy and remarkably resistant to rotting and discoloration, natural cedar is crafted into beautiful furniture that will be around for a long, long time.
Our Northern White Cedar, natural and untreated, is grown in moist swampy NE woodlands. Cedar absorbs and loses moisture slowly, which minimizes the dry cracking, splintering and swelling more characteristic of oak or pine. Cedar has the US Forest Products Laboratory highest rating for decay and disease resistance. Fresh cedar odor is a mild insect repellent. Our cedar products are shipped in their natural color, pale tan or light gold. The color changes evenly over time to a silver gray. Water-based or oil stains will delay the weathering process. Latex paint coats evenly and lets wood breath. Furniture includes durable zinc coated and stainless steel hardware. Develops a weathered, silver grey patina in one year for most climates.
