8/4 Rough Cut Spanish Cedar Lumber

The most popular wood used for building humidors!

Although the name suggests, Spanish Cedar is technically not a Cedar and is actually more closely related to the true mahoganies. Spanish Cedar has a recognizable smell that is desirable for projects such as cigar boxes, classical guitars, and other musical instruments. You will enjoy working with Spanish Cedar with both hand and power tools. Spanish Cedar wood is readily available in many sizes here at KJP.

Although these boards have been skipped dress to show colour and grain, they will still require some TLC and additional milling. If you would prefer to have the milling done for you - check out our S4S Spanish Cedar Lumber.

Rough Cut Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who enjoy working with machinery or hand tools to mill their own boards.

We use this term to describe boards that require additional milling. Rough Cut Lumber have been run through the planer to show the grain however they have not been dressed. You will need to mill both faces and edges. Rough Cut Lumber are available in specific lengths with varying widths.

For example: 4/4 x 6" x 24”

You will receive a board that is just shy of an inch thick, with a width in the range of 5-6”, and is 24” long.


S4S Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who aren’t equipped with the necessary tools to flatten and straighten boards.

The term “surfaced” or "dressed" refers to a piece of wood that has been milled. To achieve the necessary dimensions, we select a larger board to work from. Both faces and edges are then surfaced so you can be assured that the board is flat and straight. These boards are available in specific sizes.

For example: 3/4” x 5-1/4” x 24”

Great product

This is the second time I bought from this company and it’s the second time. I’m extremely happy with the products that were sent to me. They came boxed correctly and no damages. I haven’t started using the wood yet, but I’m excited to start with a new project soon.
