I’m new here. I just got the Remington humidor, I hand built my last unit from Spanish cedar. I’m concerned the shelves are not Spanish cedar. The smell is strong cedar like. Any ideas or advice? I do not want to ruin my collection!

I’m pretty sure it’s just cedar. I built my last humidor from Spanish cedar. I’m not stirring any sticks in it until I build new drawers. It could use more storage anyway! I’m trying to track down more drawer slides now, I like full extension. I’ll probably have 10 or so double stick high drawers with 3 display style box shelves. And add more fans to help out air movement.

I can’t believe for one second a $3000+ humidor would Be cedar and not Spanish cedar.

My issue is with the knots. They suck moisture in like a bitch. A premium product like this really shouldn't have knots.

I can't say that isn't Spanish cedar, it definitely isn't regular cedar though. The knots are disappointing for sure.
The drawers are built very cheap. It’s not built like a premium product. The inside smells like a fence post in lowes. I think I’m just to picky 🤷🏻‍♂️
