This box was another commission from my boss (he has been my best customer). He wanted a humidor for his small cigar collection.
Its made from Lacewood with ebony splines in the miters and lined with Spanish Cedar. The outside is finished with boiled linseed oil and polished with 600 grit sandpaper. The inside is unfinished (natural). I made the tray from a solid piece of Spanish Cedar on my router table. The hydrometer is inset flush into the underside of the lid. I used high quality solid brass hinges that get flush mounted into a 55mm round hole and have 95deg stops to keep the lid upright. Dimensions are approximately 13”x8”x4”.
