The Cube is a versatile piece of furniture that can be extended by adding an elegant detached humidor underneath it. The base unit has the same shape as the Cube, so it appears to be one solid piece, although it is two separate modules. In addition, the exterior finish of the base can also be designed to identically match the Cube, so it presents as one elegant piece with a uniform design.
It is also possible to choose a base with a strikingly different appearance: perhaps a matte finish or a colorfully lacquered Cube humidor sitting atop a base of clear optiwhite glass. As the manufacturer, we welcome the individual wishes and ideas of our customers.
From the drawing board to the finished product, there are hundreds of necessary steps involved in creating a Gerber humidor. Initial ideas are sketched, measurements are made, and woods and materials are tested. Master craftsmen gather the precious wood veneers to create unique designs.
The Cigarboards are made of special wood. Spanish cedar is the original humidor wood. The inner cabinet of the Cube is lined with carefully dried Spanish Cedar (Cedrala odorata), complete with a perfect aroma

The veneer of the lid is particularly noteworthy: a cross joint veneered by hand.
Each type of wood and each piece of wood has individual growth characteristics; therefore, each veneered Gerber humidor is also truly unique. These growth characteristics are not defects, but typical of wood.
Every tree and every type of wood has individual characteristics, such as special grains, small knot growths or interesting color variations. They contribute significantly to its characteristic surface of our Gerber cigar cabinets.
Maple, beech or other, especially light-colored, veneers can be produced unsteamed and steamed. By the so-called boiling in hot water two effects are achieved: The wood is given the necessary suppleness to ensure a perfect finishing quality. And the duration of the boiling or steaming process affects the color of the veneer. With some woods, there may be slight pinkish tones in the wood. This ensures the uniqueness and the worldwide unique quality for a genuine Gerber humidor – the best for the best cigar storage.
Smoking is a staining process used as early as 150 years ago. It involves steaming the wood with ammonia. All woods rich in tannins, such as oak, pine, larch, service tree, apple tree and Douglas fir are suitable for smoking.
The reaction of the acid in the wood with ammonia as a base produces the dark coloration. The discoloration remains absolutely stable to aging and as far as possible to light. Veneers such as smoked oak or smoked eucalyptus are particularly popular with Gerber Humidor customers. Wonderful unique pieces are created for cigar lovers that offer the best in cigar storage worldwide.
The joining of successive veneer sheets of a bundle or a whole log to form a larger veneer surface is called veneer unwinding or veneer sequence. Most popular for processing fine Gerber humidor woods is the technique of tumbling.
In the process of overturning, the veneers are selected and assembled so that two sheets of veneer face each other in a mirror image (similar to an open book, hence the term „bookmatch“ in English). The mirror image effect is particularly prominent when vividly grained veneers are selected.
