Small humidor I made as a Xmas gift for a neighbor. It’s made from padauk with holly dovetail detail and wenge edge trim. The inside is lined with removable spanish cedar. The finish is BLO and a semi-gloss poly.

I really like this. I am about to start my first humidor, and I must say that I am a little nervous. How many cigars will this hold?

It holds 20/25 cigars depending on size. The inside dimensions are 8×8.5.

Darkeyce, the corners are 5/8 holly block which I glued into place and used a roundover to ease the edges.
