Heres a couple of Pix of a walnut humidor and desk I made. The humidor is from several years ago and the desk is a year ago. What is unique about the humidor is I didnt use any finish on it. A friend showed me a single cigar tube he made on his lathe and didnt finish it but sanded it to a micro finish, it impressed me so much I decide to do it to this box. I sanded it with a DA down to 180, then went on to use a micro-mesh kit down to 3600grit. At the time I had a job where I could take this to work with me and in my spare time hand polished it for countless hours, I am afraid to admit how long it took me. When done it had a mirror shine, but I must have had thousands of $$ of labor in it. It is sitting on a walnut desk, with a pine and cherry inlay I made out of a plain 2X4 and cherry veneer.

cool humidor. I’ve been wanting to make one for sometime now. I’ve made some practice ones, but havent made any start to finish. Great design. Cool desk too – thanks for sharing. Welcome to LJs

wow. Nice job.
I sometimes use these pads for my random orbital that go up to 4000 grit. I don’t think it gets to looking like that though. Also, the grit on the pad changes from 4000 to 6000 in a minute I think.

What classy work! At the moment inlay is out of my league, but you sure tackled it pretty well. You also have more patience than I with all the time finishing that box. Great looking stuff no doubt.
