This is a 59 count humidor made from red Oak. It’s 3/4” thick with a half inch Spanish Cedar liner. Pretty massive, heavy and solid – empty weight is 10.5 lbs. Thanks for looking and commenting. Features 3/8” box joints, a little strip of Walnut inlay in the top. Finished with Sam Maloof oil/wax on the outside, and Helmsman marine spar varnish on the inside to prevent humidity intrusion into the wood.

It realy looks sturdy. I just googled the word ‘humidor’ because I wasn’t familliar with that word. So it’s a box or room for tobacco storage to dry, if I correctly understood?

That is a well built humidor.
Those box joint look tight, the finish is beautiful, and the shape is appropriate.

Is this a gift or do you use it?

Thanks Ivan. A humidor is for storing cigars in. They are typically lined with Spanish Cedar because it can absorb a high amount of moisture. Cigars are best preserved when they are kept at about 70% humidity. The Spanish Cedar liner also serves the purpose of preventing the larva of the tobacco worm (which is present in all cigars) from hatching and eating the cigars.
