Showcase cover image for Macassar Ebony & Walnut Humidor

Project Information

This was my first attempt at veneering and doing a French polish. The veneer on the box is the 3rd application of veneer as the first two had to be scraped off due to the book match separating as the veneer dried. I also had issues with applying the finish mainly due to having issues with lack of pore filling before adding the shellac. All and all I think it all came together quite well.

Very nice humidor. The wood selection and the finish make it look like an antique.

Great humidor. I agree with Charlie, The wood selection and finish make it look almost antique.

Great design and build. Nice save from the veneer problems. Turned out great.

Keep it up.

Scrappy

The sides are Spanish Cedar and the top is MDF which gives the lid some weight so it gets a good seal when it is closed. The bottom is 1/4" Birch plywood.
