See below how checking is a normal characteristic of cedar log furniture.
Sometimes, the simplest things offer the best solution. That?s the case with the Cedar Wood Log-Style 2-Foot Bench from Cedarwood Furniture. This elegantly simple little log bench will look great in your garden, whether you use it for digging in the dirt or just sitting and appreciating the serene beauty that surrounds you. Use it as a standalone or place it next to a matching cedar piece, like our 42-Inch Rectangular Cedar Log-Style Coffee Table, to provide emergency overflow seating at parties.
It's normal for all cedar log furniture to endure the natural process of checking
as the wood "seasons". Checking
occurs as a wooden log releases moisture across or through the annual
growth rings. It does not affect the structural performance or integrity
of the wood. All logs which contain the heart of the tree will develop
lengthwise cracks or checks. The check never goes deeper than the heart.
