What would be the absolute best material for a humidor to be made from? Would it be wood, and if so, what particular kind? Does it matter? I prefer lighter woods, but it makes sense that darker woods would be preferable and better age and preserve the cigar.

The humidor interior is typically a veneer of Spanish-cedar wood or mahogany. Spanish- cedar is the most frequently used wood for the interior veneer of humidors.

Fin is right. What's most important is that the smell of the wood shouldn't affect the cigars' aroma. That's why Spanish cedar is most popular material for humidors - it goes very well with cigars.

Are you going to build your own humi? If so - good luck with that!

Spanish cedar or cedar in general is really considered to be the best material for a humidor - if you decide to make your own humi, then you should consider solid materials for the interior... The exterior is not so important, so you could use any available material....

Cedar wood - even a newbie knows that - is considered the best material for constructing a humidor: it's absorbent, so it regulates at 60%-70% along with your cigars, and beetles hate its bitter taste, so it discourages infestations. What's more, it will give your cigars a slightly spicy flavor - a taste favored by most cigar-lovers.

You can get the humidor made in the material you like; but the interior should include cedar wood.

I am not sure about the lighter/darker woods but the only material to be used in humidors is wood, definitely.
