Not to disappoint you
We draw your attention to the natural slits of white cedar logs
All log furniture is subject to a natural process called “checking”.
As wood releases moisture, checking can occur across or through its annual growth rings.
This normal result of wood seasoning occurs only on the surface of the wood, and does not affect the wood’s structural performance or integrity.
In fact, we believe these characteristics only add to the natural beauty of your furniture.
Checking can range from very slight slivers to cracks running the full length of the log to the heart of the wood.
Checking is completely normal and in no way affects the integrity of the wood or the strength of the furniture.
We draw your attention to the article below:
Paragraph 10.6 CGV :
The natural slits specific to the White Cedar, pledge of its authenticity and the quality of the wood, present at the unpacking or appearing in the time do not fall within the scope of the manufacturer’s commercial guarantee and the legal guarantees. and the sap possibly detectable at the beginning of life of the Products.

White cedar is a tree from Eastern Canada (Eastern White Cedar). It is a thuja.
Eastern white cedar (Thuja occidentalis L.) is a Thuja conifer species of the family Cupressaceae, native to northeastern North America (mainly Quebec and New Brunswick).
It is called “white cedar” or “cedar” in the French-speaking regions of North America. He is also named Thuya of Canada and more rarely Thuja of the West.
This conifer in northeastern North America develops very slowly. With an average size of 15 to 20 meters and a diameter between 40 and 90 centimeters, it can measure more than 20 meters at maturity with a diameter of 120 to 150 centimeters. With a long life, some trees live up to 800 years.
Compared to western red cedar (Thuja plicata L.), white cedar is generally lighter, finer in texture and with less visible growth rings.
White cedar: a question of tradition …
For centuries, one of Quebec’s traditions has been to use white cedar chests to protect clothing from insect damage.
Quebeckers use white cedar to build their homes and build barriers. For years, farmers have used this wood for fencing for their livestock because of the exceptional durability of their wood.
ADIRONDACK – Origin of the name
ADIRONDACK is the name of the Adirondack Mountain Range in the Adirondack National Park in northeastern New York State.
This park was founded in 1885. Covering an area of 24,000 square kilometers, it is the largest “Historic Landmark” park in the United States.
The Adirondack Mountains form a massif in northeastern New York, United States. Its boundaries correspond to the boundaries of Adirondack Park. The mountains form a roughly circular dome, about 160 miles (260 km) in diameter and about 1 mile (1,600 m) high. The current relief owes much to glaciation.

The birth of the Adirondack
The Adirondack chair (in Canada, more commonly called a Muskoka chair) is a simple chair made of wood or man made materials, generally used outdoors. Originally made with 11 flat wooden boards, it features a straight back and seat and wide armrests. The advent of various man made materials have allowed for this style of chair to be made from polymers and other hard impact plastics.
The first Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee while vacationing in Westport, New York, in the Adirondack Mountains in 1903. Needing outdoor chairs for his summer home, he tested his early efforts on his family. After arriving at a final design for a “Westport plank chair”, he offered it to a carpenter friend in Westport in need of a winter income, Harry Bunnell. Bunnell saw the commercial potential of such an item being offered to Westport’s summer residents, and apparently without asking Lee’s permission filed for and received U.S. patent #794,777 in 1905. Bunnell manufactured hemlock plank “Westport chairs” for the next twenty years, painted in green or medium dark brown, and individually signed by him.
Modern Adirondack chairs usually feature a rounded back and contoured seat, modifications made by Irving Wolpin, who received U.S. patent #109239 for his design in 1938.
