    If you don't mind knots and the odd shake or split, then I've found https://www.celtictimber.co.uk/ to be good and competitively priced.

    Can't suggest anyone in particular if you're looking for something flawless.

    I think if used internally a lack of knots would be helpful

    err, but you haven't said that you are looking for internal cladding, plus why would you want cedar for internal use? Having said that, I realize that I have planed cedar in my wardrobe as an anti-moth measure, but you haven't told us anything at all about your intended use or specifications!

    Nothing wrong with knots on internal cladding - depends on what you want to achieve.

    To get knot free Western Red Cedar I specified "No. 2 clear and better". Although that was used externally on my build. I bought ours from the local wood yard who were competitive with the large suppliers such as Silva and Vincent.

    Do you intend sealing it?

    In my previous house, I made a worktop to house the basin from bamboo flooring by gluing planks together in two layers and then coating with lots of coats of yacht varnish. It worked very well.

    Wot's wrong with knots? Whatever, it'll be a long way short of the dreaded 'knotty pine'.

    They fall out and you end up with holes in the cladding. I prefer the look without holes.

    It wouldn't be my first choice for internal cladding.
