            Try Century Mills Lumber in the Stouffville area or Peacock Lumber in Oshawa,
            Good luck,

              I was going to say Aitchison in Hamilton also, I didn't get the sticker shock mentioned above on the 4*4s and 2*6s I bought... it was curbside pickup so I suspected not picking myself I'd get some banged up boards in my order, but not one, every board was high quality, straight, clean.

              I've also bought cedar recently at the Wood Shed in Smithville... maybe a nickel or 2 more than Aitchison, but comparable pricing essentially and the quality of most of the boards was good.

                  Are you sure you want cedar for a chair?

                  It’s soft and weak.

                  I would suggest that you search for distillery district Douglas fir.

                  It’s reclaimed from the Gooderham and Woorts barrel house, stronger and cheaper than cedar...Rod

                      I got some nice 5/4 x 6" Cedar decking at Home Building Centre in Lindsay.
                      I don't know if you have one in your area but it might be worth looking into.

                        Cedar is fine for construction type chairs, I assumed you were making chairs for around a table. I wouldn’t make anything aside from an Adirondack type chair out of cedar.

                        Regards, Rod.

                            I have to agree with this. I was thinking white oak when I saw this project. If your budget allows I'd go teak actually or redwood.
