Why aren’t Vigilant humidors made of Spanish Cedar both on the inside and the outside?

Spanish Cedar, while great for cigars is not a great wood for the cabinet. All Vigilant humidors are constructed using MDF core, not particle board, with a mahogany veneer. The interior of the humidor is left unfinished to absorb humidity and allow for proper cigar storage. Due to this fact, we do not use solid wood, as it will warp when exposed to moisture. Other than the carcass and shelves, all our humidors are solid wood.
