Cedar and Elm Wood
(Cedrela odorata}.The West Indian or ordinary red cedar may be considered in joinery as a poor substitute for baywood. Only the hardest and close-grained variety should be selected for work of any importance.
(Ulmus campestris}. The common elm is grown in England, Europe, Asia Minor, and North America. The wood's characteristics in its young state is brownish-white, but becomes, with growth, of a brown colour having a slight greenish tone: it is close-grained, free from knots, and its medullary rays are not visible. In the United States the best elm is largely used for church furniture; and there and elsewhere it is employed in joinery and in cheap cabinet-work. The other varieties of elm are not of great value in joinery.
