This was a long “to do” in my list until I received a Box of Montecristos last week (my favorites!).
My old (but very nice) humidor was not working properly so I decided to jump in and build this one.
Is made of solid Spanish Cedar with lined interior and the outside is veneered in Bubinga. The top is a combination of Bubinga and a nice piece of Ebony veneer.
All edges are solid American walnut. I also installed a very nice pair of Solid Brass Hinges by Brusso with built in stops.
The most demanding part was the finish. 2 layers of sanding sealer and 10 coats of brushed High Gloss Lacquer. The final polish was done with automotive compound and 2 light coats of wax to protect everything.
This was my first attempt to do a High Gloss finish and I really like the results.
I am working now in a similar humidor but in Walnut and ash combination. I’ll post the finished pictures in a couple of weeks.
Thanks for watching!!
