This is a humidor project I made to reward a gentleman who has been a patron for some of my design work in graphics over the years. It utilizes varnished unstained cherry (P&L No. 38 Alkyd varnish thinned 1:1 with MS) and features a lipped spanish cedar lining that fully engages a recess in the lid. makes a nice “woosh” of closure when the lid comes down. There is a Non-Pareil Humidifer on the inside lid surface (Beall Tool). Lift tab (ala Doug Stowe-a major source of inspiration) is made from a hoarded hunk of QS Morado. Ah, nothing beats the incense generated by carbide heated rosewood!
Top and bottom are captured in slots. Hinges are Brusso radiused exterior surface hinges mortised into the back of the box. Really must like this guy to use Brusso cabinet jewelry.
