Cedarwood has many variations, it is also known as Lebanon Cedar. True Cedar can be found in Asia, Europe and North Africa. Cedar trees are long lived and often offer poor quality, knotty wood. Logs used for veneer are carefully chosen to make sure they have a clean, straight grain. African Cedar, or Bosse, found in West Africa is a pink-brown colour when fresh, turning into a dark almost mahogany colour with age. Brazilian Cedar found in South America is a medium brown colour and Western Red Cedar is found in North America which is a more durable cedar with a colour ranging from pink-brown to dark red.
