Made of cedar for my daughter-in-law as a wedding present. I like how the grain wraps around. My father-in-law gave me an old, rusted scroll saw. After cleaning the saw and replacing a couple parts, this trim is my first project using it.

Is that western cedar for the carcass and eastern cedar for the top and bottom inside panels?

Well, Scott, I don’t know. I bought the cedar for the carcass from Home Depot. The inside panels are made from cedar closet liner.
