This is really My first decorative box. I have made cigar humidor boxes before, but they were square and pretty simple design. This box took a little more time and effort. Its made from cherry with a maple inlay. I went to a mill to buy a cherry log milled to 6” x 12” x 10’ (foot) for a customer project. I was hired to make a custom mantle for a fire place. Well I had just enough of a cut off left to make this box All of the cutting was done on the band saw. I sprayed on a catalyzed lacquer to finish the box. The Idea came from a similar project that was done on “The American Wood shop”. I’m sure my wife is going to love it.
