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.
