Similar in appearance and scent to Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Port Orford Cedar is stiffer, lighter and thus more suitable for soundboards. Indeed, it is highly sought after for the bold, robust, responsive tone that it imparts on an instrument.

Finding clear, even color in Port Orford Cedar is rare, and the product photos reflect this. We emphasize stiffness and quartersawn grain in this species. 

The sap secretions you may see on your Spanish Cedar neck blanks are normal in Spanish Cedar and are not a concern. Just scrap them from the surface and wait a few days. Sometimes a second scraping in needed. Once the wood is finished, you will no longer see the sap again.
