The humidor was made for my son-in-law in California. It is solid cherry and stained with Zar rosewood. I gave it 3 coats of rub on poly and 2 coats of wax applied by #0000 steel wool. The inside is lined with unfinished Spanish cedar. Special Note: You should wear a respirator when working with this wood as it is toxic. My brother did the carving for me. I have never done a humidor and enjoyed building one.

The keepsake box was made for my granddaughter in California. It is solid cherry and trimmed in padauk. It has a moveable tray and is lockable. I gave it 3 coats of rub on poly and 2 coats of wax applied by #0000 steel wool. If I did it again, I would have done the bottom trim in padauk.

Fabulous work Tom, your family will be very pleased with the gifts.

Hope the weather isn’t too hot where you are? I ve been reading about the prolonged heatwave. in parts of the US. We could do with a share of it here, we’ve had nothing but rain. Something to do with a shift in the Gulfstream I understand.

Hope you are all well.
