Technically this is not a new project, it’s a completion of a box I posted recently. I decided to go ahead and make it into a humidor, so I’ve added the Spanish Cedar liner and the requisite humidifier and hygrometer. This humidor features hand cut dovetails for both the outer box and inner liner, and, of course, the Invisio-Hinge. The finish is Sam Maloof poly / oil with an outer coating of Watco satin wax.

Jerry, you do better with hand cut dovetails than I do with a router. Nice conversion.

Thanks Dave, it’s not an easy thing, and I made a whole bunch of bad ones before I got here.

Wow! 3 humidors in one day. You have been busy. And all 3 appear flawless to me.

Thanks for looking and commenting Bill. When you get ready to do the hinge, I’ve got a tutorial up here.
