Rough sawn cedar doesn't look the same


I have cedar trim around my house. The old cedar has a milled type look. It looks like what hardi board siding is trying to replicate. The cedar boards at the box stores have a rough sawn look raised look. Is this due to younger trees being milled, or do I need to look for a specific type or cut of cedar?

Usually cedar has a smooth and rough side, by chance did you pick up the pieces at the store and flip it over? If not, you might try a local lumberyard.

More likely it was the type of machinery that was used to mill the boards. Band saws, circular saws, thin kerf, wide kerf, all leave a different surface texture on the wood.
