Does anyone know of a good eastern red cedar source? I’m looking to make a nice outdoor table and really prefer the look of aromatic / ERC over other cedars or other domestic rot resistant woods.

I found a couple good sources from out of state but the shipping is out of hand on quantities near or above 50bf. All the local places in SE MI only stock WRC or they want 4.5-7$ a bf for ERC. I was hoping to find some for around 2-3.50 a bf and decent shipping prices like bellforest.
