:D knew that cedar wasn't as strong as some lumber so hopefully 3-1/2 inches wide strips laminated to full3/4 inch thick will work for carlings cabin clamp will probably be laminations of 1/4 ply wider yet.maybe a thin last layer of cedar.tho maybe just a trim piece on the top. :D sounds good to me...
