Both white and red cedar log furniture are subject to the natural process of checking as the wood “seasons” and dries.
Checking occurs as wood releases moisture across or through the annual growth rings – it does not affect the structural performance or the integrity of the wood. Checking adds unique beauty to the log furniture.
Varying amounts of checking may occur on any given piece of cedar log furniture and cannot be controlled by the builder. Checking is not an indication of damaged furniture and is not an acceptable reason for a return.
