We believe that you would be hard pressed to find higher quality cedar strips any where else in North America, not to mention our pricing. At “TotemStrips” you really get more than you pay for. The photos below are accurate indications colour wise of what we mill on a regular consistent basis.
Our stock is all air- dried ”Old growth” tight vertical grain cedar bundled in three predominant shades of colour varying from light to medium to dark. All strips are guaranteed completely free of any sap, knots, and run out. Without exception every single inch is usable. Our strips are “top of the pole” when it comes to grain quality and precision in machining. You will find no feather edges and each cove is generous in depth providing positive interlocking with no misalignment between bead and cove whatsoever.
No matter which way you look at them our machining is second to none. TotemStrips clearly sets the standards for others to follow.
Proper lighting and extensive bundling benches allow us to properly sort and colour match bundles. All bundles are assembled with either 10 or 20 strips all colour matched from the same plank or timber. These bundles are then inventoried, and sorted according to length, width, and colour shade. With our large inventory of 1/4″ x 3/8″,1/2″,5/8″ and 3/4″ strips we are able to fulfill any request.
Colour-wise our strips are right off the chart! You will find no better any where in North America.
