This is my first humidor although I doubt it will be my last. Not that I’m a big cigar aficionado or anything. It’s just that I learned a lot about humidors with this one and am anxious to make another one.
This is made with Brazilian Walnut (very hard and brittle), Maple and a little Zebra wood. Brass hardware and Spanish Cedar interior. It measures about 6” high, 13-1/2” wide and 10-1/2” deep. It is a gift for my brothers 60th birthday.

Someone is going to have a smile on their face. Great job on the humidor. Tough to tell from the photos, is the design on the top and skirt an inlay or store bought patterns?

Beautiful craftsmanship and great inlay work on the top. What is the little gague on the top for?

The design on top and the skirt is marquetry. Brazilian walnut inlayed within Maple with some Wenge trim.

Cool, does the gague mesure the interior humidity?
