I made my own cigar mold today like the one in the thread below ,
I used what I had laying around which was two pieces of 20 year
old douglas fir 2x6 , I'm sure that the wood is not of a poisonous
nature ? Are wood cigar molds left natural or coated in a natural
oil of some type , I suppose the real ones are made out of a exotic
wood ? any input appreciated

Douglas fir will be fine, as long as you dont have any pockets of resin that conflicts with the Tobacco.

Ok thanks , no pitch in the wood that I used , so just leave the wood
in its natural state ( I did sand it down really smooth ) or treat it with
something like linseed oil , or boiled linseed oil ? ,

No finishing oils...

With use, there will be plenty from residual moisture in the leaf.
