This is my second handmade cigar humidor decorated with marquetry art. It is made with a combination of materials as wood veneer, bronze and mother of pearl pieces. For the outside decoration of the humidor we’ve used ebony veneer for the image of Alexander the Great and for the flowers we’ve used mother of pearl piecies and bronze leaves which are handmade cutted and processed. The inside material is Spanish cedar This cigar humidor has the capacity to store up to 50 cigars and includes a hygrometer and humidifier.

Very nice work on the box. The attention to detail is wonderful. I question the use of EVERY tag known to man for this project. This isn’t really a commercial site you know.
