Starting to look like something now. Still needs a little more sanding and a nice finish before parting the top from the bottom.

I had intended to do a fully functional humidor for this test, but I went to Woodcrafters today and found out that Spanish Cedar has skyrocketed, so since this is a test, I will probably make the liner out of some inexpensive wood and just make this a box.

The wood is hemlock, and is very cheap, but I chose it because I liked the nice tight straight grain. It cleans up real nice too. Other than the fact that it is really brittle and easy to chip, I like the look of this wood.
