I ran across an old project I did from 1995 and thought I would share it. I had just started getting my shop together and had access to a lot of mesquite lumber. This was my first attempt at box joints. The shell is mesquite with a Spanish cedar liner. It is really tight and works very well. After all these years, the Spanish cedar still smells great. There is no stain. This is natural color for mesquite. I finished it with poly.

You will see that my weak point is (and still is) finishing. I need to work on that skill.

Great looking humidor—looks like you’ve got all the bells and whistles!

As far as finishing, that’s a journey that never ends. You’ll develop a baseline finishing schedule, which you’ll use for most of your projects, while continuing to learn and experiment with new techniques—just like the rest of us!

Welcome aboard!
