My big Audax speakers used red cedar for many years with no problems of cracking. The only problem I can see is the fact that all the woodwork is done, and you won't get that wonderful smell from planing and cutting it.

Bernie may not like biscuits for joining/alignment, but that isn't a universally held opinion. They have some slop aling the length of the slot, but very little across the width. They allow the assembler to get everything aligned without having ultra precision in one's cuts.

well in the case of any parts cut by Bernie, the precision is built in

If your biscuit cutter cuts slots with a sloppy fit, you need a new blade, (or biscuit cutter).

al/ sniffing his maple...

I would think that all sides of each panel would need to be sealed with something prior to 1) adding the Ultratouch and 2) assembly, in order to minimize expansion/contraction with humidity/temperature.
Or is cedar not as prone to such things?

Regardless, VERY nice looking cabinets. I can easily imagine the aromatherapy and pest-control benefits...

Insides are pre-sealed.
