I found red cedar at both Lowes and HD about a month ago and bought enough to make an Adirondack chair and a small deck table.
The table is made. The chair came up a few boards short so I went to Lowes to get more. What I needed was a 2” wide by 3/4” by 8’. What I found was 2×1x8 this time. It’s a quarter inch wider than I want.
Next time I think I try Shutte for the cedar. I’ll have to cut the boards down to 2” but at least they will be uniform thickness every time.
It looks like the boards have been fed through a planer that had grips on the back that dented the wood too. They are pretty deep and I had to use my orbital sander with 60 grit to dig them out.
I love their pine, but the cedar is terrible.
