no previous part Part 1 of Works in Progress series Part 2: Humidor test build - first pics »

I was going to build a humidor for my brother in law, Raul, for Christmas, but at the last minute, I decided to hold off and consult with him to find out his specific desires. Good thing I did, now I’m armed with knowledge, a lot of great new tools to help me facilitate the task, two of which he bought me for Christmas. First this lovely Veritas dovetail guide

and this great addition to my router plane, an inlay cutter head

Just got back from Woodcrafters with some lovely Spanish Cedar for the build.

Let the games begin :-)

He must like you a lot. Either that or he wants a humidor to make others jealous. :)

Ahh ha ha… I just hope I can deliver. He’s got a few really nice ones already, so I have some grandfathered in competition, but according to him, none of them is the ideal size. I’m hoping to deliver something simple yet elegant, finely hand-crafted and most importantly a humidor with good performance.

Great way to cut for inlay with the router plane. Very cool.

Very nice gifts Jerry. I’m sure you will make him a worthy box and use those new tools to do part of the work.

I think it’s going to need dovetails, and some fancy inlay, but that’s just a guess.
