I occasionally smoke a cigar with friends. I typically carry two or three with me when we do. Currently I use a plastic hard case “travel-dore”. Sure, it’s nice. But it ain’t “woodworking swag to show off to your buddies” nice.
I’ve kicked this idea around for a bit and finally executed. I made four. Two with mini-barrel hinges and two with traditional hinges (shown).
The box shown is Walnut top and bottom with mystery wood sides. Feel free to throw suggestions on what it may be.

I plan to have nice pictures taken (photographer in the family), but for now, I’m getting this one out there. I’ll post the others shortly.
I’m really happy with them. All four boxes received two coats BLO followed by three to four coats of Arm-R-Seal.

And since I design packaging for a living, I made a nice carton to hold the Box.

NOTE: this is not a humidor. It’s not meant to be. It’s purpose is to carry a few cigars with wood glitter style.

Nice job on the cigar box. As a retired graphic artist myself, I really like the packaging you created for the piece.
