This was a quick build but interesting. I used Oak for the sides and top, with Wenge’ for the edging. The top was lasered out and liner of spanish cedar added. I still have to put in glass, it’s engraved and I had a piece of thin plywood laser cut to frame the inside edges of the glass where I will use caulk to seal. I also used a locking miter joint on the corners for this build, it makes glueup and squaring so much easier.

very nice! a Humidor is definitely on my long list of projects to build. Don’t know if I will ever get to it though.

Great job and thanks for sharing.

That looks great! I know this is from a while back but I’m currently building one with a glass insert and was wondering what silicone you used? Any issues with leaks?

I used standard silicone from the hardware store to hold the glass. The inside surface of the box was sealed with polyurethane spray then the unfinished Spanish cedar was friction fit in to the bottom and sides. The cedar is high enough on the side to press snugly to the lid Whalen it closes
