This is another humidor that I did as a commision from a previous customer.
Wenge for the box and Zebrawood for the top and accents. Obviously spanish cedar for the lining and of course good ‘ole brusso hardware. Sanding done down to 220.

Dimensions are 13×9 x 5 and the finish is 5 coats Watco Danish Oil and 3 coats of hand rubbed Black Bison wax.

I left the humidifier and hygrometer un-installed as I think that is a personal decision for the customer to make for the location of these items as he sets it up.

Love the look of the Wenge…and the contrast with the zebrawood is great. Very nice clean lines. So when it comes to the inside of the humidor do you finish the outside box and then slide in an “unfinished” spanish cedar insert? Always wondered.

Very nice box. Can I ask where you got that hardware for the lid? I haven’t seen that style hardware that small before.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments…...... this really was fun to make and it is always great when you have a “repeat” customer.

Grizz..... LOL, yeh, this one is “smokin”

Jeff.... You are correct, I finish the box first ( very carefully ) and then fit the lining into the box so it is very snug. The spanish cedar for the top and bottom are built into the actuall box frame and “float”.

Nick.... I got all the hardware from Woodcraft, although Rockler carries it also. The hinges are the JB-102 and the lid stay is a JB-250. I think that Brusso makes the absolute best brass hardware available.

Thanks again everyone…........:)
