This box has primitive construction with butt joints, cut nails and home made stains to give a period impression. It has blackend hasp and butterfly hinges. The finish is layers of stain made from tea, iron oxide, tobacco/ammonia, linseed oil and finally wax.

Outstanding! I’d love to read a treatise on your organic staining philosophy. The idea of staining a humidor with tobacco/ammonia appeals to me greatly. Great box!!!

Topmax – Well the time period of the 1860s, Victorian Era I guess. I use the period boxes at Civil War Reenactments.
