Yet another, this one 75 count of curly maple, and wenge for the main body, edge band and splines, and a book match of birds eye maple veneer that was shop cut on the trusty laguna bandsaw! finish is a six coat lacquer with a full hand polish. interior is solid Spanish cedar with adjustable dividers.

Very Nice looking humidor , I really want to make one for a friend of mine but the hinges and getting the top to fit tight always seem to be a bit of a pain to try and get right.

to answer the question about cutting the top ! yes on the tablesaw, and then some lapping of the box and lid on a sanding board
