    Hi and thanks for your question! These beds are not built of cedar, but pressure treated pine. Our beds vary in height, using combinations of stacked 2x6, 2x8 and 2x10 boards. You'll want them to be a minimum of 12-13" deep. If you are set on cedar, I would check with your local lumber yard. If they don't carry it, they will be able to steer you in the right direction. Good luck with your project!
