Wood Vendors supplies only the finest Spanish Cedar Lumber from South America insuring consistent, high yielding lumber.  Spanish Cedar wood has the rare ability to regulate moisture which makes it highly sought after for cigar humidors. Spanish Cedar hardwood is becoming increasing difficult to procure and the long lengths that used to be easy to find are becoming a thing of the past.  Recently African plantation grown Spanish Cedar has become available, but it tends to have more pin knots than the naturally grown South American variety that JW Hardwoods offers.  Botanically Spanish Cedar is a member of the meliaceae or Mahogany family, which explains it’s durability for outdoor applications.
