    I'm doing my first cedar shingling project on the sidewalls of my house. I'm using eastern white cedar 16". I noticed that almost all shingles have one side that is convex across the grain and one side concave. I've also noticed when sighting down the long edge of the shingle many of them also...

    I'm about to begin nailing new cedar shingles to my exterior walls using white cedar shingles. I've worked out the optimal exposure to be 5 1/2". This results in full 5 1/2" courses snugging up nicely against the bottom of my windows. It does not work out as perfectly for the top edge of the...
