Will I run into any problems building and finishing a small box made of cedar for a customer ?? She is requesting it built of cedar – any suggestions as to glue and finish – the majority of my boxes have been built of oak using tight bond 2 for glue and watco danish oil for finish – finger joints, mitre joints are what I usually use – any lumberjocks want to give me suggestions ?

I just made one out of cedar. Same glue. Same joints. Same finish unless you want to smell it
