Hello LJ’s, this is small travel humidor made in the bevel box style. Wood used are cherry , blk. walnut , bird-eye maple and spanish cedar. The Spanish Cedar is just one of the greatest smell wood to work with, the aroma is wonderful to have lingering in the shop. Finish with shellac and wax on the exterior. The lid is a combo of laminated woods with the center portion being end grain cherry left over from a cutting board. This idea will leave for a new series of countless combination on future lids, over all I like the end result let me know what you think and as always thanks for viewing..Blkcherry

Blkcherry, The end grain cherry on the lid is something else. That adds such an interesting look sandwiched between the walnut. Beautiful job.

Sweet. That’s a handsome box. I love Spanish cedar.
That center strip really has potential.

Very nice, the shape, the splines, the woods chosen all combine very nicely indeed.
