Very, very nice work. Great design as well. Super choice of woods. One of the nicest humidors I’ve seen in a long time. My compliments.

This is lovely.
The burls are perfectly chosen and positioned, the inlays are excellent and the finish speaks very well for itself.

Is the corner inlay laid in quite thick before the corner is shaped or is it marquetry or the tricky curved veneer inlay? What ever it is it really adds to the difficulty level and the respect level from where I’m sitting.

Five stars!
