I want to build a cedar chest for a friend. I’ve looked at several plans on the net and looked over ones here on LBJ. She wants an all-cedar design, not just cedar lined.
I’ve noticed that plans that call for all-cedar construction seem to be pretty basic. The plans that are frame/panel usually call for cedar linings. Moreover, I’ve read that most cedar lumber available today is mediocre for furniture use. I don’t know if that is a gross generalization or true. I have a sawmill about 45 miles away that has a good supply of cedar.
So, a few questions:
