Beautiful Job Jerry. Those hinges are getting to be really hard to see. Nice humidor.

Great work, Jerry. Is the Invisio-Hinge a hidden rod in a dowel? I’ve been looking to try something like this/that.

The 1/4” ones are a real bear, thanks again for looking and commenting!

Yes, I use wooden dowels of the same species as the wood, cut them into 5 segments and keep them grain matched, then I use a special drilling jig to bore out a 1/4” long hole into both ends of every piece except the two end pieces. I only bore one hole in them.

I made a tutorial some time ago on how to do this, if you want, you can see it by clicking here.

Great looking Humidors Jerry! I’m just starting to build these and love the process, I like the invisible hinge, a lot more elegant than quadrant hinges. Does the lid stay upright when you open it (stopped at 95 degrees) or does it rotate all the way back?

Thank you very much Nick. To answer your question, the trick with the hinge is to flatten the back side of it flush to the back of the box. With the .325 distance past the center point of the hinge it makes it stop just past vertical. I don’t know if it’s 95 degrees, but it’s very close to that.

Great looking humidor, Jerry! Simple and elegant. I also like the finger joints, and of course your patented “Jerry” hinge!
