I am thinking about building a band saw box (the kind with the cut out
drawers) out of aromatic cedar:
Can you buy 4x6" thick aromatic cedar and if so from where?
Is it dry enough to work with?
Does all aromatic cedar have that creamy white and pinkish colors blend
through out the wood or is it a sapwood,heartwood thing?
Is this even a good choice for these kind of boxes?
Cedar is readily available here in Tennessee (it grows like weeds
here). You might try a place that sells wooden fences. Whether it is
kiln dried or not I don't know, but you can dry some yourself. Not
all stock is sap or heartwood, it can vary. Cedar can have the
tendency to splinter. Another idea is to build your boxes from
another wood and line the interior with cedar veneer (available at
your home center).
