79.9 in

A seamless wood texture with western red cedar arranged in a stretcher pattern. The image represents a physical area of 2030 x 1217 mm (79.9 x 47.9 inches) in total, with each individual board measuring approximately 200 x 200 mm. The joints are filled with fine lime mortar and are 3 mm (0.1 inches) in width.

Western red cedar is so-called due to its origins along the northwest coast of the United States and Canada. Typically displaying a red or red-brown hue, western red cedar holds a straight grain pattern with medium or rough textures unless sanded. Due to its low cost, red cedar is a popular timber of choice for commercial architecture and construction projects, whether for structural elements, façade cladding, flooring, or roof shingles.

This texture uses a running pattern also known as a stretcher bond. The stretcher bond is one of the most common bonds used in masonry construction and uses stretchers, bricks laid flat with their long edge parallel to the wall. Each alternating course is offset by a half stretcher.
