Beautiful workmanship I really interested in the butterfly inlays, did you use a jig? & would you consider doing a blog with some pictures on the process? I like it ,thanks for sharingBest Trevor

Very Cool! I agree… The butterflies where a very nice touch… I also like the gauge out side the box. I have never used, owned, etc.. a humidor but i can see that being handy.

Wow…great looking cherry. Well…the whole thing is great but I love the look of that cherry.
How did you afix the lid panel? floating? glued in? room for expansion?

Thanks for the comments. Trevor: i used a butterfly jig for the first time on this. i found it to be quite frustrating because it was difficult to clamp it to the wood while keeping the clamps out of the way and keeping the template flat. i was using small scraps for the butterflies which didn’t help. i’ve done butterflies before, and done them by hand, which almost seemed easier. but i’m sure after a bit more experience, i’ll get the hang of jig. i agree that it would be cool to see a blog about how to use the jig, but i don’t think i’m the one to do it… at least not yet.
Ken- i gave these to a photographer buddy to take the pictures, and so i’m kinda stuck with what he took, and he didn’t take any of the inside of this one. take a look at the first humidor i posted; there’s a pic of the inside of that one, and they’re all the same. i may add some more (non-professional) pics when I get the chance.
Greg- thanks! i love the look of this cherry, too, and have used it on a number of projects. the sap pockets also makes the wood heavy. i’d say this humidor is at least 50% heavier than the others. the top is rabbited into the sides. i put one drop of glue in the middle of each side where the bookmatch joint is to allow movement at the edges, but to keep the top from sliding around.
