Here are a few more travel humidors for a client of mine. The larger ones hold 5 cigars and the smaller one holds 2 cigars. I have started using custom made terracotta humidification devices very similar to brown sugar savers. The first is a purpleheart and birdseye maple, followed by bubinga and chestnut burl, and sapele and zebrawood.

Monte, I found a nice lady on Etsy that makes brown sugar savers and she custom made these for me.

Great boxes! Did you just use Spanish Cedar veneer on the inside, or skip it all together?

I like them all but if I had to choose I would maybe go for the purpleheart as I am a sucker for purpleheart.However they are all pretty well stunning you are a talented man.Funny this coming up I am about to make my wife another box for holding her paperwork jewelery etc .I have a few pieces of very red very dark wood which I was told was wenge but am not sure to be honest.Could you recommend a corner fixing/ finish I am thinking of hand dovetails but it is a while since I made them,and am a little nervous but at the same time excited yours look lovely if only my wife smoked cigars LOL.Still never too late too start I love cigars but am forbidden my wife bronwen has emphasemia and the very smell of smoke on my clothes makes her cough till she is sick.

Great looking humidors! I’m sure he’ll get a lot of use out of them—and a lot of compliments!
