After making the cedar chest, I had aenough scraps to make a little box. Never tried one before. Left the inside raw for the nice cedar smell with poly on the outside. The top is a raised beveled panel done on the table saw. The trim was done on a router with a round over on the outside and I cut a router on the bottom which raised it a bit.

Bill, that is a gorgeous box and a nice way to utilize the “scraps” that invariably accumulate. I have to warn you though, building boxes is addictive. So proceed with caution. :)

Thanks for the post.

OK… I thought it was a casket. But it’s a good looking casket. Looks heavy. But you may want that if your paying $25 for your cigars. Speaking of that, I wander how you might incorporate a way to lock the top?

Squirrel casket maybe. Cigar humidor, hmm. I did think about putting on a latch of some kind, I used hinges I already had and let it go but I still may do it later.
