Someone showed our family a lot of generosity and kindness in a very big time of need. We had a very personal family tragedy strike us and this individual showed he was made of a lot of class. So in return I’ve put a lot of love in the construction of this humidor. I actually started my designs with humidors. The fad died down and I switched to Jewelry Boxes.

This humidor is larger than my jewelry boxes.
It is constructed of Cherry and Peruvian Walnut
and it measures 16”x11”x5”.

It was made using the Incra Jig (as usual). The sides measure 3/4” thick and the top and bottom float for expansion. The whole box is finished, inside and out, with 6 coats of sprayed on lacquer. The inside is lined with 1/4” think Spanish Cedar.
