Redwood is a softwood that is known for its resistance to rot and insect damage, making it a common choice for outdoor furniture and decks. It is the tallest tree species in the world, and its reddish brown coloring and generally straight grain make it a favorite among many woodworkers. Redwood burls produce some fantastically grained and colored pieces of wood. Redwood is typically easy to work but requires special attention on highly figured pieces to avoid planer tearout. Old growth is known to be harder than new growth, and it is recommended to use a durable sealer when using redwood slabs for live edge tabletops and similar applications. Here at CPSW, we have a large selection of redwood products listed here, ready to ship worldwide.
