I made this Walnut and soft maple humidor for a friend who is a cigar enthusiasts. The inside is lined with spanish cedar. These hinges were a first for me. They are SOSS barrel hinges, which fold inside themselves for a 100% invisible hinge when closed. I put i a hydrating sponge in the top, and my signature penny on the bottom. I put a penny in all my proje5from the year i made them as a time stamp.

Nice box, nice angled sides and top. Splines match just fine.

Nice touch using this style box as a humidor. I love cutting spanish cedar the smell lingers for days in the shop. Nice work Matt!

Very nice – tapered sides are a definite PLUS

That’s a beautiful humidor. My father-in-law is a cigar afficionado, and I’ve been wanting to make something like this for him. And I love the penny as a signature/time-stamp…what a cool idea!
