My brother had a few cedar deck boards left over from building his walk in humidor in his cigar shop. He wanted me to build something to display some of the smaller items in his shop out of these boards. We spend most of our visit hunched over his desk in the back of the shop sketching up concepts than I finally got to get away from the prying eyes and bring the piece to completion. I added a few surprises for him, like an almost unnoticeable lip to hold his items on the rack, as well as my first dovetail joinery ever on a finished piece. Naturally I was probably more impressed with myself than he was with the piece but he loves it all the same. It was a blast to build and I got some left over cedar and a bunch of cigars out of it in the process!!
