The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association is a non-profit association representing 27 producers of the finest Western Red Cedar lumber throughout the US and Canada. Ask for our quality products by name: “Real Cedar”!

Why Real Cedar?
For starters, this highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks, which means any project you build with Real Cedar will last longer and require less maintenance. But wait!
There’s more:
BEAUTY – Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of Real Cedar. Imbued with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties, Real Cedar can create dynamic outdoor sanctuaries, embolden traditional home décor and inspire cutting-edge architecture.
VERSATILITY – Western Red Cedar is pitch and resin-free. Which means it’s ideal for accepting and holding a wide range of beautiful finishes. Real Cedar also offers a wide range of lumber dimensions, surface textures and grades. Ergo, whatever your desired effect is, Real Cedar’s got the wood for you.
SUSTAINABILITY – Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetics products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, Western Red Cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. And unlike brick, cement and composites, Real Cedar is renewable and biodegradable. Plus, Real Cedar is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world.

    The planter looks great! How do the mitered cuts hold up over time?

  2. Vice and Virtue on July 15, 2021 at 2:34 am

    Wood is amazing, the design…not so much. Those joints will open up.

  3. James Donovan on July 15, 2021 at 2:37 am

  16. HE JASON on July 15, 2021 at 2:56 am

    Unfortunately, such good materials.

  17. Lycan ZHP on July 15, 2021 at 2:56 am

    Jim, my guy! Pretty slick with tools man. Nice job.

  18. Cody Laslo on July 15, 2021 at 3:01 am

    Very nice job but I just dont understand why you would spend so much money and time and not even use any glue.

  19. Dean G on July 15, 2021 at 3:02 am

    Jim is a natural. Should have his own DIY series!

  20. harxmoond on July 15, 2021 at 3:03 am

    These are beautiful. But over time the mitered corners will open up.

  21. Susan Fitzgerald on July 15, 2021 at 3:03 am

    Great video. Thank you. One question: How much will it cost to fill this big planter with soil, and do you have a favorite DIY potting mix recipe for this? Again, thanks for sharing! 🥦

  22. jason kwon on July 15, 2021 at 3:04 am

    I’m a rookie at this, I made a sandbox for my kids with wood of lesser quality but didn’t pre drill any of the holes and regretted, Is that step not necessary with cedar or did I just miss it?

  23. Bare Foot Fishing on July 15, 2021 at 3:05 am

    Last longer with a 4×4 post inside minus all the angle cuts on the end

  24. David Cooper on July 15, 2021 at 3:06 am

  25. Fair Vue on July 15, 2021 at 3:10 am

    the perfectly aligned screws are impressive.

  26. Juan Villalpando on July 15, 2021 at 3:12 am

    Very cool but cedar is very expensive

  27. Isaac Maxwell on July 15, 2021 at 3:16 am

  29. SP on July 15, 2021 at 3:20 am

    I am not sure what happened but my cedar raised bed inner struts started to rot and became very soft after a year

  30. R E. on July 15, 2021 at 3:22 am

    Nice job but safety is out the window. NO safety goggles!!?

  31. Judith Ogus on July 15, 2021 at 3:22 am

    How about adding hardware cloth to keep out the gophers? This wont work as is where I live. (-;

  32. PR731630A on July 15, 2021 at 3:22 am

    I used treated 2×10 lumber,which these days is much safer than arsenic
    treated lumber before the year 2000. I also, nail in a single run of 10"
    galvanized steel roof flashing onto the side of the board facing the
    dirt. Bend the extra 1/2 inch of flashing over the bottom of the 2×10
    (which is actually 1.5×9.5). This will prevent the board from rotting
    and drastically reduce any treated chemicals leeching into the soil. My bracing posts in the corners in the middle are 2×4 cedar. I also sit my boards on paver blocks, going all around the bed to keep
    them off the ground. The bed will last 2-3 longer than non treated, non
    cedar wood.
