Port Orford Cedar is the strongest cedar in the
world. It turns very nice and has a very distinct Ginger like smell to
it. These balusters are clear. There can be an occasional small tight
knot in these but 95% of the stock we see is
completely clear. We have been using this POC to build lures for over 7 years now. It turns, sands, and seals easily
and will take paint very well. POC is typically used to make arrow
shafts but because of it's strength and buoyancy it makes a excellent
choice for poppers, swimmers, and floating needlefish lures. POC is an
extremely dense wood, typically found in one section of the USA and
grows only in higher elevations. It is a very slow growing tree very
similar in properties to Alaskan Yellow Cedar.
