    if any of you live around Miami, perhaps you would help me with a bit of information.
    I would guess that there would be a number of cigar makers around there.
    I recently learned that the very thin cedar sheets that come with a GOOD cigar are for lighting them, so you don't "bruise" the tobacco with a match or lighter.
    What i would like to get is the phone number of some of the cigar rollers to see if I can get them to either tell me where they get their cedar sheets or perhaps sell me a few dozen. Shingles , Ya Know!!

    The wood they use for cigar wrappers is called Spanish Cedar.
    It's supposed to be toxic if inhaled and connected to a variety of nasty respiratory ailments, so I'd use a respirator and some kind of dust collection if you're doing any sanding.

    I wonder whether you could get what you're looking for as a veneer product through a woodworking supply house, for example:

    Veneering -

    I've thought about using these products for shingles before, but haven't ever gotten around to it. The Variety Packs are reasonable in price given the amount of material that you get.
