I’ve been busy this summer making and selling some boxes. I decided to add this partiular one to my projects here on LJ. It’s a humidor made from Santos Rosewood sporting a Walnut top and trimmed in hard maple. The inside of course, is lined with 3/16” thick Spanish Cedar. This was the first attempt for me at making a humidor. It is NOT my design but I was pleased with the outcome.

I have this listed at my Etsy Store and if it gets a new owner, I might make another one with some different choices in the wood. All I know is that I had a bunch of fun making it and learned how to install 95° stop Brusso brass quadrant hinges in the process.

Comments are welcome.

Very nice work Dave, I might just take up smoking cigars just to have a reason to buy this box!

Great looking humidor! I’m sure it will sell, and the new owner will be very pleased with it!

The box looks great. Did you have any problems with the 95° stop Brusso brass quadrant hinges.
