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.
