I made this humidor for an old friend of mine who gifted it at a wedding. The box is made of cherry, the top is curly maple, and the edge banding is sapele. The floor of the humidor is solid granite and it is lined with spanish cedar. I finished it with 2 coats of BLO and 4 coats of Minwax semi-gloss poly.

I like the granite detail, bet it made this heavy.

I am planning to build one for my brother-in-law’s birthday. I see a lot of good ideas in this one. I really like the contrasting edges.

Lovely box! Perfect combination of gorgeous woods, the edge banding sets it off. Very clean lines, impressive work!

Great work! I am planning on building a humidor soon, have been doing some research on it. How did you fabricate the top? Is it veneer? If not how did you account for wood movement?
I am trying to figure out the design on mine and am worried about wood movement with a solid wood top, looking for some input from people with experience. Thanks.
