The Old Cedar Post is a family owned small business located near the beautiful Texas Hill Country town of New Braunfels. We utilize 100%Texas Hill Country Cedar (ashe juniper) in all of our custom furniture and furnishings creations. This tree is considered a hardwood and possesses a naturally high oil content for durability and longevity as well as unique grain and coloration pattern much like the human fingerprint. The ashe juniper tree has been studied by Texas A&M University and found to have a profound impact on the environment because of this tree’s natural canopy impeding water flow from entering aquifers which are the largest sources of water in the Texas Hill Country. The most common use of ashe juniper is as fencing material because of its natural strength and resistance to rot. Unfortunately, the larger diameter ashe juniper logs are usually burned because they are too large to use as fence posts and won’t fit in most commercial shredders. By using these ashe juniper logs and milling them on our sawmill we find a functional and beautiful solution to burning these large ashe juniper logs.
