Nice
Do you ever work with Alaskan Yellow Cedar? Found mostly in Canada apparently!
I have been offered some by my wood supplier, but know nothing about it

Being from the East coast (NB / NS) of Canada I had never had the opportunity to use Yellow Cedar. Now that I am living in BC I am starting to experiment with yellow. The price points have certainly reversed in the past couple of years - yellow cedar used to have a lot of demand in Asia - they are now more interested in red so there is a glut of yellow on the market and red is at an all time high. What are you planning to use it for?

I was going to use it for poles and lattice. I liked the tight grain, but the color may not be ideal, but staining it might be nice. I get some customers who want darker wood and Doug Fir doesn't stain well if the grain is more open.

Interesting application for yellow

structural on the lattice is NOT my forte
tight knot vs clears may be something to consider
stains well
light weight

Personally for that application you may wish to stay with Douglas Fir - I would defer to MANY other members regarding this as I have NEVER made a lattice / fabric yurt.

I think my old saying may be appropriate here .... I don't know ANYTHING and I can prove it"

LOL

Doug fir is a premier wood for many items. I make arrows from it, it is superb for that use. It would be ideal for ripped yurt laths, but very expensive.

I buy 'clear' 2x studs at Depot or lowes, and make rips from them. Yes, clear studs are there, but not generally when you are specifically there to buy it. lol I have bought clear ones when I happen to see them. Rip and stash for future use. I have a couple dozen stashed right now.
