Where to get Spanish Cedar for shelves

catfishbluezzcatfishbluezz Posts: 7,001
Hey guys, I'm curious as to where one might get Spanish Cedar to make some shelves. I'm thinking about making some for my wineador, nothing fancy, but to maximize space really. LMK, I've seen online retailers, but is this something one can buy locally at the hardware store?

    Local lumber store is where I got mine. I never even knew there was one near where I lived before I googled for it

    I got mine from our local woodcraft store (it's a chain though so might be one near you)

    Also there's some other online sites mentioned on these threads:

    Intersting... I'll call around a couple local stores. I need to make the most of my room in the wineador and do not want to spend much really. I figure it should be relatively easy. I'd like to maximize them for circulation ad storage purposes. If I do it, I'll post pics

    Good luck dude. I wanna say woodcraft sold it for around $5/board foot when I bought it last time....

    It's really pretty easy to do. I measured the wine racks, front and back (found out the racks actually narrow toward the front), figured what thickness I needed, and just went out to the lumber store. After I bought the board, I just had the lumber store cut it for me to the thickness I needed, then cut the lengths I needed. All I had to do was hammer everything together and stick it in.

    I went with a slatted bottom for my drawers, the better to let air flow and crumbs fall out

    Wine Enthusiast has sales every now and then; free shipping saves about $100, but then again, Amazon has free shipping for orders over $25 and an awesome return policy

    I get my Spanish Cedar at a hardwoods dealer within driving distance from my house. Last time I bought some it was about $6/bf if I recall correctly. If you consider a board foot is a piece of wood 1"x12"x12" you quickly realize how crazy expensive most online sources are. Call around and I bet you'll find someplace. I doubt any hardware stores will have it, it's a specialty wood. Good luck, bro!

    They sell it at Rockler.com by the board. Not cheap, but convenient. I have used Rockler before and can recommend their service and quality.

    There are several units advertised here that would make a first rate wineador, not too expensive either.

    I tried a dual zone once, I'd never get another dual zone again. Definitely recommend against them. Serious problems with maintaining RH; ones too dry, ones too wet since the humidity dribbles from one to the other - ugh. One big wineador is just easier to maintain since there's more room for air flow

    I was thinking of actually keeping wine in one zone and cigars in the other.

    Eh, it depends how you set it up. The biggest issue I had with dual zones was that there's a little space between the glass and the dual zones, so humidity can slip between the zones. The problem is, while it's big enough for humidity to slip between the zones, it's not big enough for the zones to equalize the RH, so one was always higher than the other.

    If you can figure out which zone is higher, I suppose it could work; never tried it myself.
