This humidor is nearly identicle to the one I posted yesterday.

CONSTRUCTION:
Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and bottom tongue and groove.

Walnut sides and bottom. Birdseye Maple lid. The insides are lined with 1/4” spanish cedar. The sides of the bottom stick up into the lid 1/4” to create a seal so that air won’t want to escape.

Brusso hinges – solid brass (different brusso hinges than the other humidor I posted)

FINISH:
3 coats of Deft clear danish oil. 3 buffs – Tripoli, white diamond and carnauba wax.

Nice! One of the many things on my to-do list. Now that I have my shop I’ll be enjoying more cigars during the winter.

Very nice humidor. Like th color combo and the design is great. Nice understated “handle” (lifting point?).

Keep it up.
