Just found these pics of the first box I made a few years ago. It was going to be a humidor but I think I messed up on how to do the lining so now it’s just a box. Nice to come across the old stuff every now an then :-)

Good looking box. From experience, lots of ways to screw up a humidor.

Nicely done. If you end up quitting cigars, you still have a great, usable box.

Thanks for the nice comments. It was one of those design on the fly deals and in the end, I was pretty happy with how it came out as a dedar-lined box. :-)

No veneer on this one HorizontalMike. All solid curly maple and purpleheart.

I really like the inlay on the inside edge of the opening…. really pops!
