i think paul summed it up well. it seems like every time i see cedar it is always outdoors or rustic type pieces. are you wanting expand your designs in that genre or go for something different? the lead off picture (dining table and chairs) on your website is interesting. when i first saw it, my impression was that it was a rustic style piece. it just automatically has that look due to the material used. then after looking at it a little more closely, it’s not really a rustic piece. if you built that set out of any other hardwood it would be a very nice, clean looking dining set. it looks well designed and built, but in my opinion, the material choice (cedar) really distracts from it. i can’t help but think if that set were built out of a more traditional hardwood, it would appeal to a broader range of people.

i guess the most important thing is, what kind of venues are you selling through, and how are you doing at it? look at the people that are buying your pieces, are they the market you’re trying to hit?
