This is a Waterfall Bubinga humidor I’m building for a fellow BOTL (Brother Of The Leaf) All 4 sides are made using a bent lamination technique. It’ll measure 57”W x 43”H x 32”ish deep. So far this has been an incredible experience building this Humi. By next week I should have finish on the outsides complete. More to come as I progress. Please enjoy.

Incredible stuff. You are a very very talented, knowledgeable guy. I can’t wait to see this project finished. That grain on the panels has the most incredible depth I’ve ever seen. Stunning!

Please give us some details such as joinery of the frame and panels. Are the stiles bent laminations? are the rails beveled? Are the panels themselves bendy ply with veneer or ? Are there doors?

Any closeup joinery pics?

Thanks, looks great!

More, More, More, info please. It looks like a very exciting project. How will you line the inside, spanish cedar? Will that be bent lamination? Please keep us posted. I’d like to learn the bent lamination technique you used too…

I just love Waterfall Bubinga. I used some of the mattress frame for the Cradle/glider that I made for my wife. (Grandmothers need a cradle too)
