This is a humidor I built for a fellow BOTL. The Koa was wood I got from a friend that bought up most of the veneers when Leer Jet went out of business. It’s the nicest I’ve ever seen. The rest is Tiger Maple. It has warm Oak stain to make the Maple pop and 10 coats of lacquer to make is smooth as silk. Please enjoy.
