Cedar Battens

Canadian cedar is one of the best timbers you can use for decorative battens becuase it is very clear of knots and character so it has a wonderfully consistent finish. Our Canadian Cedar is no.2 clear and better and 80% knot free. Cedar ranges from a pinky orange colour to a light brown which gives it a unique and sought after natural appeal. Canadian Cedar is also very stable and tends to stay straight in thin sizes. It is probably most appreciated for its durability lasting for decades outdoors even untreated.

What is a Chamfer?

A chamfer is a 45 degree cut through the right angled corner or edge of a piece of timber. A chamfer is often used to take of the sharpe edge and reduce the chance of getting a cut or splinters from the edge of timber. Chamfers can provide a tidy edge to planed timbers when using them for screening and feature walls.
