This humidor features grain matched Peruvian Walnut, machine cut 1/4” box joints for both the outer box and inner liner, and a 1/4” Invisio-Hinge. The finish is Sam Maloof poly / oil with an outer coating of Watco satin wax. It’s a little smaller than the other one ( No. 1 )

Jerry, This one turned out just beautifully. The hinge really is nearly invisible. You need to explain the 1/4” part of the hinge to me ???

Thanks again Andy. Well, to answer the question, I have two sizes of hinge I make, one from 1/2” dowel, and one from 1/4” dowel. I don’t often delve into the 1/4” ones because they are so fidgety to make and get right, but the hinges for both of these Peruvian walnut humidors were made with 1/4” doweling, which means the hinge channel is 1/8” deep for the top and bottom half, and the hinge is recessed into the box exactly 7/32” so I can bury the hinge axle and still have enough wood left on the dowel to flatten it flush to the box.

Thanks a lot Jerry! Now that means I have to try the 1/4” version :)

I’m assuming some pretty skinny stock for the hinge pins.
