This is the matching Decanter Box for the Humidor. Also made with MDF, white oak and Burl Myrtle. The box holds four decanters and opens a full 180 degrees to show the interior – which is lined with black formica to match the padded/buttoned lid. I chose Formica so that the alcohol would not damage the french polish.
The 8-way radial match pattern on top was supposed to carry down the four sides, but I didn’t do a very good job of getting all the pieces aligned – more practice…
I wanted to make my own hinges and hardware in the Bettjemann style, but the more I looked into it and learning how to engrave – the more I was contented to use “store-bought” hardware this time. If anyone has made, or makes their own brass hinges, locks, monograms etc., I’d be very interested in talking!
Anyway – thanks again for looking.
