Topic tags/keywords: question maple walnut joining modern

Okay, I’m about ready to get serious on this project I posted on my blog a while back. I’ve done some research and think I know what a good basic design is, but I am going to be using some of my precious black walnut and maple, and I want the best outcome.

Here are the likely suspects, on the right is the 1/4” Spanish Cedar that I will use for the liner, center is the Walnut, and of course the Maple to the left.

The following rendering shows my design

and here are the particulars

Maple front and back – Tails

2@ 5 3/4” Wide x 13 1/16” long ( 1/32” over on each end for planing. )

Walnut Sides – Pins

2@ 5 3/4” Wide x 9” Long

Tail Spacing

9/16 half pin space on each end

1/4” spacing between each tail – widens to 3/8” at bottom

4 Tails 1” wide at widest

Walnut Top and Bottom Pieces

9×13 – Two pieces edge glued to achieve 9” Width

Rabbet 1/4” deep x 1/2” wide

Cut top off at 1 1/4” below top splitting the first tail.

If any of you could please offer advice or input of any type it will all be greatly appreciated as this is my very first humidor build.

Thanks,
—Jerry

With that lid design, how do you plan on making a good seal?

I”ve altered the rendering so you can now see the cedar liner. That is how it will be sealed.
