Cedar of Lebanon, light to medium brown heart with strong scent. Medium fine, straight grain but can be knotty. Durable timber, medium miusture movement and low strength. can be difficult to machine, bark pockets can be troublesome. Can be painted and varnished well. glue, oil and polish are ok but high resin content prevents most treatments.

This timber has a unique perfume, grows to incredible dimensions & is a sought after by furniture makers for wardrobes & chests of drawers because the scent keeps cloth eating moths and insects at bay.
