Spanish Cedar Lining 1/4" Lumber, Choose Your Size
Why use Spanish cedar? Take your pick: the consistent reddish gold color, the extraordinary low weight, the ease of machining, or its general good looks. The wood is the traditional choice for the interior of humidors (cigar boxes) because it aids the aging process of cigars. While Spanish cedar is fragrant, the wood also boasts excellent resistance to rot, making it a good choice for outdoor projects.
This 1/4" thick material is available as a lining in cigar humidors. The 1/4" thickness lets you take advantage of the humidification properties on the inside of the box while using any other type of wood you want on the outside.
Why Choose Spanish Cedar?Straight-grained, wavy, curly and mottled grain. Soft with a moderately coarse texture. Easy on tools and cutters, but the low density and softness make it prone to splintering. Resembles mahogany at first glance. Milled Spanish cedar also contains an uncontrollable resin that seeps onto the surface.
