Welcome to “Totemstrips”, your West Coast source for awesome cedar strips where you will find the most economical, and diverse line of Cedar Bead & Cove strips available any where in North America. 

We are sure you will agree that our strips are “Top of the pole”, second to none.



The above 65 strips were all obtained from one single plank!



The thrill is in the hunt , finding great cedar sometimes just floating by. Due to the tides, the saying goes “Here today, gone tomorrow”.  Adding a Woodmizer LT50 to our cedar strip milling operation, TotemStrips now processes from the log, to finished strips in house further enhancing  quality control.

We have been milling our cedar strips for almost 3 decades with precision and quality being of utmost importance first and secondly with respectable production capacities to match. “TotemStrips” shares and passes these savings on to you offering North America’s finest strips at the finest prices.

Here in the rainforest, we have access to spectacular cedar, and coupled with our cutting edge milling processes we are able to provide many different thicknesses & widths of cedar strips. We do not discriminate against  shorter lengths under 16 feet as we consider all tight grained old growth cedar of different lengths to be special. Choosing your lengths carefully will save you money, as well as reducing waste. 

Great pricing on  “TalonGrip” Cedar Strips !


We produce strips in many different sizes and lengths for canoes, kayaks, rowboats or any other project you are building. We manufacture larger bead & cove planking for yacht construction as well as Saunas and Hot tubs.
