    Cedar is beautiful timber, but it depending how it's finished, can quickly weather and grey with age if located in a place which is subject to sun light. This won't apply to indoor use of course, but Australian cockatoos (a variety of parrot) find it very attractive and will happily destroy cedar windows and weather-boards.

      Red cedar is one of the lightest woods, lighter than pine. IIRC, it's also very, very soft. It's will nick and dent quite easily. Something to consider given their target environment.

        American Red Cedar is not a true cedar but a juniper; Juniperus virginiana. Due to its insect repellent and sometimes people repellent aroma, it was commonly used around here to build cedar chests for the storage of fine linens and the berries can be ground and used as a food spice. What's more important, the berries can be used to make Gin. Gin goes well with red meats, cheese, and Stevie Ray Vaughan played through your new cedar wrapped speakers.

        Just had to throw that out there.
