Wow a third time.

I’m curious with something like this… do you cut 12 lids, cut 12 each of the 4 sides, cut the 12 bottoms, etc in stages like that or do you really approach each one seperately as an individual project. Production runs of each piece would be more efficient I would think, but would certainly be more monotinous.

Great stuff.

The boxes are all built one at a time….but at the same time :) Because all of the lids are bookmatched, and all of the bodies have the grain wrap around all four corners continuouslly, I cant do a “true” production run….but because theyare all the same, machine setups are universal, and that saves a bunch of time.

Thanks everyone.

These are beautiful humidors Ryan. I’ve always thought there must be a good market in humidors. Because guys that smoke nice cigars usually have a bit of money to spend… Nice work

I just got an idea. I sell quite a few Humidors on my website each year. I’ve been getting them from Reed & Barton – but I wonder why I couldn’t try making my own. Of course 100 might be a few too many – as Clint Eastwood once said “a man’s got to know his limits”.

Man those are nice. I really like the detail. What amazes me about boxes is that most people look at boxes and think how hard can that be. Well, try it.

I like the contrasting splines in the miters. Nice touch. (Almost) makes me want to take up smoking again.
