Cedar lattice brace material

I have been think of building a Cedar lattice brace guitar. Has anyone had an issue using cut offs of the Cedar soundboard to make the lattice brace system?

I have not done that but I can not see any reason why you can not.

the left overs can be used of course, but i never have done the lattice in cedar, usually is spruce or the Australian stile, in balsa.

I use Spruce for the lattice on both Cedar and Spruce tops.
