If you can dream it up, we can have it made!  We specialize in working with customers with unique building materials needs all over the US.

We are currently working with a home builder in Half Moon Bay, CA on an exquisite custom home and are getting ready to ship out this custom milled, clear vertical grain Western Red Cedar rail cap along with more clear cedar T&G cladding for the project.

Starting with the architect’s specs, we had a line drawing created with the exact measurements for the customer to review before starting production.

Once the clear, vertical grain Western Red Cedar rail cap was milled, a filler piece of wood was attached to the bottom to help protect the “legs” during pre-stain and shipment.

Next, the rail cap was pre-stained with Penofin Ultra Premium Red Label in “Cedar”.  This will help protect the custom milled Cedar rail cap during shipment, on the job site, as well as during installation.

Trending Now – Cedar Tongue and Groove Interior Paneling

Perfect for adding natural warmth to any room, Western Red Cedar tongue and groove (T&G) paneling is a trend that is being seen in new custom home construction, in commercial building, as well as in the remodeling market.   Easy to work with and high performing, Western Red Cedar helps designers and homeowners easily achieve an organic warmth in any room effortlessly.  Because Western Red Cedar is pitch and resin free, it readily accepts almost any stain or finish, including bleaching products.

Clear grades of Western Red Cedar T&G paneling are prized for a consistent and clean appearance, as well as natural, rich color variation between boards.  With exceptional stability, clear Cedar T&G will add sophistication and warmth that no man-made product can provide.

Less expensive than clear Cedar, a quality Architect or “Tight Knot” Cedar tongue and groove product will have knots that remain tight and sound through the life of the product.   Knotty Cedar T&G paneling will provide unparalleled texture and helps create an open concept living space, especially when used on the interior ceiling and extended outside the home or office into the soffit areas.
