Cedar

Spanish Cedar likely won't be available at your big box stores.

Check your local lumber yards, the ones that sell rough lumber and/or have their own mill on site.

Otherwise, maybe Rockler or Woodcraft. Also, Amazon and eBay have offerings at very high prices per board foot.

Board foot is actually a unit of volume, not length.
L*W*Thickness 12" x 4" x 1/4" = 1 board foot.

If you buy rough lumber and mill it yourself, take every precaution to not inhale Spanish Cedar dust. It will wreck your lungs.

Good luck
