Smells as good as it looks.

Eastern Aromatic Red Cedar's fresh scent naturally resists mildew and repels insects, making it perfect for closet paneling or drawer linings. The rustic look of these plywood panels adds to the heirloom charm of finished projects clad with Columbia Forest Products' aromatic cedar. Use it floor to ceiling or in wainscoting applications.


Face grade 1/4" x 4' x 8' aromatic cedar plywood panels will often display the following inherent natural and rustic characteristics which have traditionally be recognized as the "cedar look."

  • Knots: pinhead to dollar sized
  • Sapwood (white to beige or brownish color bands)
  • Mineral streaks
  • Plugged or filled knots, splits and seams
  • Wide range of reddish colored heartwood
  • Strengths in aromatic cedar fragrance may vary

Features and Benefits
