Spanish Cedar is not a true Cedar. It is actually closer to a Mahogany. Its color can range from light brown to a pinkish/red brown. Spanish Cedar has a moderate rot resistance in old growth trees. Allergies are uncommon but, some people have reported respiratory problems. Spanish Cedar is quite easy to work with when you have sharp tools though some sanding may still be necessary.
