Humidor i built for a co-worker. I really love the book matched top, this was leftover walnut from my final at school.
Walnut with maple accent. Black walnut oil , 4 coats wipe on poly and a paste wax to finish it.

Agreed on the bookmatched top. But better watch out- there may be a few Cubans lurking around inside…

Very nice looking box. The bookmatch top with the maple trim really bring it out. What is the round gague and the black box for? I have seen these in humidor photos before but don’t have a clue. Someone asked me to build a humidor a while back and I declined since I don’t know anything about humidors.

Very nice – I wish I was one of your co-workers too!

Greg – the round dial is a hygrometer, to measure humidity. The black-box is a humidifier, to keep the humidity stable and keep those expensive cigars from drying out.

Very crisp in appearance. It has a bold look that draws the viewer in. I enjoyed looking at this project.
