My first box ! A cigar humidor. It’s my first time working with walnut and Spanish cedar lining. The dark edges are ebony (also a first).

It is a great looking box. The ebony edges are a very nice touch.

Very nice looking cigar box. I agree with WayneC, the ebony looks great.

Your first box?!

You’re either pulling our leg or you’ve got one heck of a natural talent for this.

Great work! I am planning on building a humidor soon, have been doing some research on it. How did you fabricate the top? Is it veneer? If not how did you account for wood movement?
I am trying to figure out the design on mine and am worried about wood movement with a solid wood top, looking for some input from people with experience. Thanks.

This is a wonderful humidor and I love the beautiful wood and craftsmanship.

Great job! That box looks exactly like a magazine plan I once built. I made it as a jewelry box for my daughter. The edges were a lot easier to do than I thought. Mine was built from Cherry with Walnut trim. The Cherry darkened and the Walnut lightened over the years to the point that the trim hardly shows up at all.
