Ninzan Studio Alaskan Yellow Cedar Gate

Prized for its workability and cool yellow tone, Alaskan Yellow Cedar (also known as Alaskan Cypress or Pacific Coast Cypress), has the same insect, rot and decay repelling tannins and oils as Western Red Cedar, but is heavier and denser, which gives it more strength.  This rare and remarkably beautiful softwood is only grown in the Pacific coast region of North America but is not a true “Cedar” species.

Located in Sarasota, Florida, our Instagram friends at Ninzan Studio were contracted recently to construct and install gates to match an existing fence made from Alaska Yellow Cedar.  When they were unable to find the products they needed in their local market, they contacted us to help them with their project.   We shipped them the materials they needed and combined with their superior craftsmanship; the new gates turned out beautifully!
