  1. Anthony,In thick enough section cedar would be strong enough for mortise and tenon joinery but I agree with John that many cedars could be a little too soft for the table top. Eastern red cedar could work in terms of hardness but it’s not that easy to find completely clear stock, and might not be available where you shop.I’m not wild about poplar as a show wood although it would be reasonably durable in that application.I think a dining table provides an occasion to showcase some really attractive wood so I’d suggest you broaden your search if at all possible.

  2. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!
