When my cigar smoking friend announced his retirement , I knew I wanted to gift him a humidor. I made it out of curly maple and Spanish cedar. I used turquoise inlace for his initials. The hinges are Soss 204 hidden hinges. I constructed the box with through dovetails and finished with semi gloss lacquer . It is 14 1/2 ” wide, X 7 1/2” height X 10 1/2 ” deep. Thanks to Kings Fine Woodworking for the plans.

Nice looking humidor well crafted and the curly maple makes it even better. I’ll bet your friend was really pleased with it.
