Massive Humidor

Here is a humidor that is for storing and aging cigar boxes, thus no trays. It’s solid hardwood with a African Mahogany and Wenge, lined with Spanish Cedar, a frosted edge glass lid and Wenge dovetail keys. The box is 30”x13”x13” and weighs about 35 lbs. The second to last last pic shows how the top was made – I created an insert that had a 1/4”x1/4” Wenge inlay that was then miter cut to fit and glued on the inside before cutting off the lid. The last pic is with the matching ashtrays that (are another posted project) were made from scrap wood on a whim.

This humidor and the ashtrays are met with mixed emotion, they are the last items to come out of my woodshop before I shut it down yesterday to move. If I have one recommendation for anyone looking to put a bunch of really heavy woodshop tools in a basement, DON’T unless it’s a walkout.

Looks excellent Matt!

I take it you are relocating? At least it is a good time to clean the tools up and find all those things you have lost over the years..
You dog looks pensive, I think he wants your new humidor to have a nice cushion added and to “lose” the lid.

Yea, I’m relocating. We will hopefully close on the new home in 40 days. My woodshop has been shutdown to sell our current home, and it will be sitting in a garage at my Inlaws until we close. I’ll be building a new shop in a detached building at the new home (assuming the purchase process works out….. ) hopefully starting within 30 days of moving. Abby just wanted to go outside and wasn’t happy that I was making her sit in pictures, she thinks that camera’s make her look fat.

That is a nice build! Your dog looks a little worried, like that box might be for him.

I told my wife to bury me in it… I hope she doesn’t get any idea’s on accelerating the timeline that I’m stuffed in there….

Thanks Tony, me too. The process of moving sucks, even more so when relocating out of state.

Great project, puppy looks sad to move as well. We have a 9 month old Chlt as well. Our 14 yr old crossed the rainbow bridge last yr. crazy how much we LOVE them.

Enjoy setting up your new shop.
