I built the cabin on a sailboat that way out of cedar, about 1X1 1/4” or so. Worked fine. I didn’t do it for looks, but rather for strength. In fact, on the outside covered the joints with brass angle, cut to a semi-fancy shape on the edges, so you couldn’t see the shape. Clint Searl’s chest shows you can make a nice looking chest that way, where you emphasize the structural element instead of trying to hide it.
