they have a cigarette shop down the road that sells them have a machine that rolls them but a whole carton is in one box ,not 10 single packs but at 25 bucks a carton its a deal ,built this in the same size as of the box ,sits right down in there and a lid to cover them .i left the end open to put stuff in lighters and loose change as it sit on my coffee table ,im tring to quit but have only gotten good at quiting so far ,quit once for 5 years ,one time for a couple ,but they are addictive and have found out that if you quit you dont start over , if you quit and was smoking a pack a day in a little while thats where you start back at sorry got side tracked ,its cedar and the small emblems i got from hobby lobby i think 2 buck for a pack of 6 and the feet are small shaker knobs they were a few cent not much drilled a hole and pluged them in there , just a box that fits the need with a coat of poly , and thanks for looking and all of those that have quit dont pick em back up ,

Nice looking. Could easily be used for something else next time you quit :-)

I like it. Cedar Smokes, has a ring to it!

You’ll need a bigger box, for all the money you’ll save, once you quit!!! Unless of course, you immediately spend it on wood and tools! Whaich ain’t bad either.

Wow, nice box Eddie. I like the way you used the emblems to decorate it and for the top of the lid. I also like the curves you cut in the sides.. makes it look sort of like a double ended piano. Maybe it’s just me, I have a weird imagination that way. Anyway, I like it.

Good looking box!

Just thinking about how long ago I quit. Let see 1992 to 2012 so about 20 years now!
I’m not sure how much I saved in money and years of life but I know I spend most of the money on woodworking stuff!
When my late” farther quit he said to everyone. “If I ever take up smoking again I’ll lick a butt filled ashtray clean and you can call me on it”. He never smoked again. He died at age 80, Rest his soul.
Good luck on your next project and good luck if you decide to quit smoking a try again.

We all hate dust and smokeing should be at the top of that list!

eddie, that is a functional looking design and and a nicely done box. One question, is it Spanish Cedar like for a humidor? I’m guessing but a North American cedar might impart a, well, weird flavor to your cigarettes. I started getting my cigarettes the same way as you are, except that I roll my own with a small rolling machine at home. I’ve been wanting to do a humidor box to store both the loose tobacco and rolled cigarettes, to hold the moisture content within a reasonable range.

BTW, if they sell the same tobacco and tubes as they do around my way, I hear that there are a lot less additives and the cigarette papers are not treated with carpet glue or whatever the stuff is they now put on to self extinguish. So although cigarette smoking is not the best vice to acquire, this way, if in fact there are less additives, way it might just be a bit better for you then the branded cigarettes.

I love the woodwork! I don’t smoke so I can’t comment on the convenience factor.
