Walnut wood for humidors was the logical choice because walnut wood is a medium toned, hard, dense and tight-grained species. It's prized by woodworkers for its strength, grain and color. It polishes to a very smooth finish, and the color ranges from creamy white in the sapwood to a dark chocolate in the heartwood. Walnut Humidors present an elegant finish that is pleasing to the eye as well as the hand. This wood has been exceptionally popular with woodworkers since its availability in North America. Often used for fine furniture and cabinetry, it should come as no surprise that it would also make an excellent humidor for storing your cigars.
Why Walnut? Well, the first reason is that it’s gorgeous. Walnut presents a unique combination of grain and color. The wood can be stained to a dark, rich color or left unfinished to reveal more of the wood’s natural grain patterns. With walnut you get the choice of lighter or darker finishes that will both add charm and character to any room.
Walnut humidors are more often than not finished with a rich walnut stain to accentuate the wood grain. There's no better material for humidors. If you’re looking for a high-quality humidor that will add style to any room it’s placed in, look no further than the classic walnut.
