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
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.
