I am making band saw boxes and have yet to work with cedar, I have a customer wanting 3 boxes, one from Spalted Hackberry, Walnut and Cedar, so my question is which cedar is the normal for this type of box Western, or Aromatic or does it really matter?

Thanks

I’d go with Aromatic on the sole reason that Western Cedar has no real properties that Aromatic doesn’t have, and it’s sooo much prettier.

Western Red Cedar—think #2 pencil wood. Bland grain.
Supposedly has some traditional indian flute making applications though.
