First try at buying Aromatic Red Cedar from Rockler
Posted January 18, 2014
This purchase is my first try at buying Aromatic Red Cedar from Rockler. Very disappointed. The reviews I read that said this was a bad product were right on track. I read the reviews and said I don't believe it's that bad of a product. Boy was I wrong. I received all of the problems ever body else had. It took me 4 boxes to get the coverage of about 1 and a half boxes. There were that many bad boards. I don't know if I will try Rockler for other wood purchases. I have been purchasing wood locally but very limited in the wood I can get. Was going to try on line sources.
OK if you know what you're getting...

What I got was mostly bent, split, and knotty, but I got it to work. Considering the price I didn't expect to have to do extra work, I'd pay more for straight & flat... but it does smell good!

Just bought 3 boxes to line a chest I built. Figured I bought 1 too many but glad I did. Out of 3 boxes I had just enough to line chest. So many really crooked planks that weren't useable, tongue and grooves split and broken off, and knot holes in the ones that were straight. I do not recommend this product if you care how the final results look. I won't buy this again.

Excellent full length 4ft panels and excellent to work with. Easy to install. The tounge side of the tounge and groove had some problems but had no problem installing it. It has a great aroma and makes a nice chest lining.

I had to buy 2 packages for my hope chest project and was extremely dissatisfied with the product. The best pieces seemed to be strategically placed in the packaging "window". All but a handful from both packages were cracked, warped, and crooked. Several had broken out knots on the machined edges. A lot of the tongue and grooves were broken as well. I won't purchase this product again.
