My second box. Made it for my father’s birthday. Holds about 50 cigars.
I used Leopardwood and rabbeted basswood on the edges. I originally was gonna use walnut inlay pieces, but I really liked the contrast with basswood. Walnut wasn’t enough of a contrast.
I lined the inside with Spanish Cedar and pressure fitted it to allow for humidity flex. 10mm Barrel Hinges.
Finish is Polyurethane finish and unfinished interior. Size is about: 12” x 7 1/2” x 5”. Subtract 3/4” (1/2” leopard wood and 1/4” cedar) for interior dimensions.
The box I found seals very well. Humidity already is up to 60% in one day. Usually it take a bit longer to get it up to speed. I live in Denver, so we all know there’s no humidity here.
That’s about it.
