CEDAR, WESTERN RED

Ashe juniper

THE TIMBER:
The wood is a pleasant brown color with a slight aromatic odor. The apparent slow growth of this species produces narrow growth rings, which can be shown to advantage when sawn on practically any plane. The grain is apt to wander in an attractive style over longer lengths of sawn boards unless the main stem was straight.

WORKABILITY:
If the grain direction and patterns are considered when machining, Ashe juniper is fairly easy to work with both hand and machine tools. It is hard and dense enough to retain crisp edges and easy to hand scrape and sand. Gluing and finishing present no problems. It turns well but may occasionally splinter.

USES:
In addition to the obvious external use for fence post and fuel, Ashe juniper is used in its growth area for small items of furniture and craft work.
