Here is a pair of cigar rests with an area for ash (ashtrays) that were made from scrap wood from my massive humidor project. The wood if African Mahogany and Wenge. I started with 12 pieces of Mahogany and 8 pieces of Wenge and glued four 5 piece blocks. Then I glued the four blocks in to two, and two in to one, drilled the cigar rests and butterflied the block in to two halves. Next it was the hollowing out process – drill press, then router, then LOTS and LOTS of sanding. they are finished in Danish Oil. Finally I ended up with two Cigar rests with an ash area.
These and the humidor 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.
