Cedar of Lebanon
Also known as Solomon's
Cedar, the Cedar of Lebanon tree typically grows in the Mediterranean regions of
Europe, but occasionally shows up in ornamental landscapes in the US.
European trees are becoming more and more scarce, and are heavily protected
where they occur naturally. The wood was supposedly used in the
construction of many Biblical temples and buildings, including the Great Temple
which was constructed by King Solomon. The sapwood is a light
yellowish-white color, and the heartwood is a reddish-brown. The wood is
lightweight, turns easily, sands easily, and will produce a medium lustre during
sanding. The wood is also aromatic, producing a sweet, non-overpowering
scent while being worked. Available in limited quantities, while supplies
Special Note: Although relatively
easy to dry, these pieces may develop slight hairline checks on their outer
surfaces while being worked, due to the low moisture content of this wood in its
natural state. For the best results, pieces should not be left sitting
exposed for long periods of time after the wax coating has been removed.
