My wife and I are in the mist of a bedroom/bathroom/walk in closet remodeling project. We are tired of not being able to orgainize the basic things so we designed a large walk in closet. Now she is asking me what would be involved in installing aromatic cedar panelling on the closet walls. I can find some local cedar cut with a bandsaw. Most is 1" thick and widths vary from 3" -6" and the length is generally 8' The mill wants $2.50 per foot and I expect a 30% plus waste factor. My questions: Should I try to T&G this myself? Do I really need to T&G for this application or if the thickness is sized properly, could I just fit the boards by using a 22.5% edge? And, Are there any special problems associated with working with eastern cedar that I should be aware of? Thanks for any comments.
