Red cedar instead of Spruce or pine

  • I'm currently building an expedition and am sourcing wood for the stringers and sheer clamps.  I have access to some nice clear red cedar for a good price.  Would it be okay to use this instead of pine or spruce?

  • I am using red cedar for the stringers and other parts - it is much lighter than pine, but I have stuck with pine for the sheer clamps mainly because it doe not take fastening so well
