White Cedar Wall Shakes
All you “up north” guys, White Cedar is a foreign product to me.
Can anyone give real world life expectancy for Eastern White Cedar shakes, 5/8″ thick , 18″ long / 6″ to the weather over slicker type product. I (really the Mrs.) would like them but, I’m concerned about longevity and upkeep. They would either be left raw or treated with a clear product.
Also, is the slicker product THE best practice or is there a better way, over spaced lathe, etc.??
Thanks.. once again!
