this is a humidor I’m making for my brother. It is going to be a travel humidor. I figure it’ll fit about 5-10, depending on the size of the cigars! The end pieces are solid mahogany and the middle is solid (some kind of) birch. I still have A LOT of work to do on it…I’m going to round over the corners, and I’m still thinking of ways to do the inside so its unique and isn’t so boring – the one pictured here is one of my ideas – its two different shades of spanish cedar. I might try and tile the inside with spanish cedar. I’m also not hinging it. I have 8 really small rare earth magnets I might place in each corner, and then cover with thin wood; hopefully that’ll keep the lid tight enough – do you think? Any suggestions, comments are always welcome – not sure how I’m going to finish it – I kind of like how the wood looks, might just put a clear glossy coat on it, and leave it like that!! For some reason I cannot get the whole picture on here, it keeps making the picture too big and cutting some of it off – the other side of the humidor you can’t see is the same as the side you can see

oh, and besides the mahogany ends, There is only 2 pieces of birch – there are no joints. It is solid with the middle routed out – to make it more air tight.

For a travel humidor I’d think the magnets would not hold well enough. You’ll want the lid to hole the lid and the weight of the cigars if it were tipped on its sides. Just a couple of thoughts I had.
