I made this for my step-son and being my first humidor or fist box of any type for that matter, I’m pretty well pleased with it. I had some challenges with the finish on the cocobolo (1st time working with that!) and wanted a more glossy look, but I wanted to use what I had in the shop and I had to settle for satin. (my high gloss had stain mixed in with it). After completion was almost there, I realized why nobody uses Spanish cedar all the way through. The wood is very soft and I know it will end up looking 30 years old in probably less than a year. I definitely need to invest in a band saw so I can resaw the cedar and make boxes lined with it.
Any suggestions or comments welcome.
