Spanish Cedar is one of those mysterious cases where its name makes absolutely no sense. This stuff is neither Spanish nor is it Cedar. It’s actually called Cedrela and it’s really a Mahogany from South/Central America masquerading as a Cedar from Spain. Spanish Cedar is THE wood for making cigar boxes as well as being the traditional wood used for the neck of a classical style guitar.
Whatever you call it, Spanish Cedar is an amazing beautiful wood with rich warm tones and a light cedary fragrance when worked. It can also have an outstanding swirly figure that shimmers as seen is the Spanish Cedar.
