This was a fun little project using scrap red oak, Jatoba and walnut. The body is made from oak staves the base and lid are Jatoba and the finial is walnut. I got a nice tight fit on the lid and it is just the right height to hold a few of my favorite cigars. I used a home made box scrapper for the inside work and the wall thickness is about 3/16”. The staves started life at 6” X 3/4” square. I beveled them at 22.5 on each side and went from there.
Try one at home, you’ll have fun too.
