This is a solid walnut and maple humidor made with splined miter joints. The wall thickness is 3/4” – needless to say this is a sturdy box. The tray and inside is lined with spanish cedar. The hinges are solid brass quadrant hinges. The knobs on the tray are also solid brass. I am debating whether or not to add a knob/pull on the front lid to assist with opening as it is a bit of a snug fit (not a bad thing when it comes to humidors) but I do also like the clean look of it without any hardware on the front. The finish is a mixture of equal parts polyurethane, tung oil, and BLO. The humidity level will be maintained using Boveda humidity packs and a Hygrometer will be installed later. The humidor measures roughly 17” x 11” x 10” tall and will hold around 150 cigars. Thanks for looking!

Hi. I came across this project when I was researching humidors on the site. This is absolutely beautiful. Nice job. I was hoping you could share with me how you constructed the tray. Is the bottom just half lap rabbets? Thanks.
