Micah Sutfin, a very accomplished woodworker who works at Woodcrafters downtown Portland, OR has been a mentor to me since I started my woodworking journey. He’s helped me make the right decisions on purchases, provided me with great customer service and just the right kind of help when I needed it.
When I told him I was getting ready to start a production run of humidors, he said; “I want to buy one of your humidors, my best friend is getting married and I want to give it to him as a wedding present.”
I have to admit I was very surprised and flattered, and not a little intimidated, but I agreed.
Well, this is how it came out, I delivered it to him yesterday and he liked it very much.
The outer box is grain matched Walnut and is made with box joints. The inner Spanish Cedar liner is joined with lock miter joints. The hinges are satin nickel – silver and the hinge mortises were hand chiseled.
The finish is 6 coats of hand rubbed Teak Oil.
I will be posting a build blog next week with start to finish pictures.
