My first humidor completed and many thanks to Douglas, Tom and Caver for their tips and advice, much appreciated!
This is obviousley Curly Maple with Sapele for the lift and keys. Lined throughout with Spanish Cedar.
The top lining is integrated with the top of the box and also the bottom lining is integrated with the box.
The interior lining is pressure fit with a tack of CA on the bottom edge. Probably not needed as it was
a good tight fit. As recommended, I made sure the top closes with a nice “whoosh”.............
I upgraded to the Brusso hinges and lid stay. I used these hinges because I had them but next time I
will probably go with the exterior backstop hinges per Douglas’s recommendation.
I haven’t had much experience with hinges…............. “they can be a challenge, huh”....
I guess I’ll get better with time.
The interior divider and tray are removable.
The customer had his own Humidifior and Hygrometer so they are not shown.
Dimensions are: 13×9 x 5
Finish is multiple coats of Watco Danish Oil and Black Bison wax.
Thanks and any comments or tips on installing hinges or doing things differently, please fire away….....
