Spanish Cedar - Painting

jmgalvin's picture

My local lumber yard recommended using spanish cedar for some exterior millwork. My question is how does this stuff paint. I concerned about the open grain in the wood and the many coats that will be needed to produce a smooth surface. Anybody got a good finish schedule for spanish cedar.
