Does anyone know what kind of wood Acid brand Cigar boxes are made from. I’m color blind but it looks reddish brown to me. I have a bunch of the boxes and like working with the wood and it finishes well. I just don’t know what kind of wood it is…

Spanish Cedar, the exterior just has a sealer and the interior is left plain jane…

That’s an interesting question…I actually have a box from some Kuba Maduros on my workbench that I keep stuff in. The outside doesn’t look anything like spanish cedar to me so I never would have guessed that’s what it i s.

Just take some sandpaper to the box and smell and you’ll know for sure…BC

Totally spanish cedar.. I get to work in a cigar shop every now and then.. I get to have the old boxes and I have quite a few.
