Cherry humidor with maple splines and butcher block finish.I figured the butcher block finish would be acceptable, because it is foodsafe and if the cigars absrobed them there would be no toxicity.Only after making it and giving it as a gift was I informed that a humidor should be preferably Spanish cedar,with absolutely no finish and no glue if not a soy based glued which should not alter the taste of the cigars.The bottom is bookmatched, the top is slip matched because my pieces weren’t big enough,the sides are continuous grain all around,and the top has a chamfered rebate for a press fit.

Jim,the web clamp is the best thing I’ve ever seen for gluing up mitres and odd shapes.I used to use tightly wound surgical tubing I bought at the hardware store,works pretty well too and you can buy 10’ for 10$.Tightly wound it applies a tremendous amount of clamping pressure. I even use the web clamps and surgical tubing to glue up panels,it is stronger and less expensive than many clamps!
