Using Aromatic Cedar for the top will require glass or plastic to protect the top as cedar is pretty soft and will dent and ding easily. For your design I would suggest re sawing the cedar into a veneer and gluing to a MDF substrate top. By gluing to a substrate and sealing the top with a good quality finish you will limit the amount of wood movement due to seasonal weather changes.
