Cedar Wood: Characteristics and Applications

The Cedar of Lebanon belongs to the Pinaceae family, all very ornamental and majestic plants, among which we find in addition to our Cedar of Lebanon also, the Atlas cedar, the Deodara cedar and the Cyprus cedar.

There are some who believe the last three, subspecies of the first, not all experts agree. Cedar of Lebanon wood is particularly appreciated because it is solid and resistant, plus it is also aromatic.

It is often used to make furniture or various pieces of furniture. Nowadays, cedar wood finds various uses in industrial sectors and is highly appreciated for the composition of furniture and cabinets.

Older furniture makers use cedar wood for its distinctive scent that makes it perfect for linen drawer bases or wardrobes linings. Cedar wood is able to release a strong essence that immediately strikes the human sense of smell, it is the perfect material for those who want to furnish the home environment in the best possible way as it is light and at the same time highly resistant and for those who want long-term safety and resistance.

 
 

From building temples to furnishing interiors

The bluing (if it is not rotten) can be tolerated, and with a careful processing put in a hidden position, as well as the resin pockets that are repaired if they are not huge, the knots instead if healthy and well adherent as long as they are not grouped or too large (> 30 mm) are also present in sight, for those who want a cleaner material, pine lamellar is available.

As regards the resin it is necessary to remember that even after months or years from installation, due to environmental stresses, around the node or in a fold of the fiber, this will inevitably peep out, and this means that very covering paints or lacquers are to be avoided. Last but not least, consider that the use of pine (at least for Danese) responds to the demand for respect for the environment and eco-sustainable behavior. In the Nordic countries of origin, the use and management of the forest as a renewable resource is in fact a tradition and a way of operating consolidated for decades.

Cedar wood is highly appreciated for composing furniture and cabinets.

Cedar wood is famous for its strong aromatic power, for its lightness and for its great resistance. Although cedar wood apparently has no place in home furnishings today, it must be said that cedar is still popular in the world of craftsmanship. Cedar wood for furniture and wardrobes production is still very popular.

Older furniture makers use cedar wood for its distinctive scent that makes it perfect for linen drawer bases or wardrobes linings. Cedar wood is able to release a strong essence that immediately strikes the human sense of smell, it is the perfect material for those who want scented drawers and cabinets! Another reason that sees the use of cedar wood for the construction of drawers and cabinets is that the same smell that we appreciate is unwelcome to wood insects (moths).

Anyone wishing to exploit the properties of cedar wood as a natural mothproofer will only have to use cedar essence.
