Default Waxing Moon Humidor Thread

I have been doing a thread on each humidor as I go... but, that is getting to be too confusing... so, I think I'll just keep this one thread going and post updates as I go... Will be easier for me to manage....

I just oiled this bunch up today.... the oil has to dry about 3 days... so, in the mean time, I'll work on dressing out the interiors...

First up... Maple with a heavy mineral stain streak & Walnut...



Next.... Curly Maple & Walnut



Ambrosia Maple & Quilted Maple.... That lid is hypnotizing...



Wormy American Chestnut & Walnut...

Here's another Wormy Chestnut & Walnut.... This one has an engraving on the inside of the lid.





And these two.... are a little bit behind... I just need to add splines, cut the lids off and sand...sand....sand... but, it won't take long to get 'em caught up to the others...



And.... because I'm spending so much time in the in the shop... I'm building this little jewelry box on the side for my girl...

Bird's Eye Maple & Wenge.... :-)

Laser I am sure. In college I got to play around with a laser engraver in my free time.

The drawing is a bit short....but, it is the angles that count...

I'll start saving money now...What kind of capacity you suppose that would hold? Or can be made to hold? Probably decently deep and whatnot.

I'm sure Ed can pull it off.

This was Bombed to me a while back from Keith, Cigarcop!

I felt it appropriate, hope I'm not stepping on your Toes Ed.

By the way, those humis left me speechless! Absolutely amazing work Brother!

Finally, I am able to start finishing up these two little boxes.....

First up is the Curly Maple & Purple Heart... She's 10.25"x8.75"x5" for right around 60 count....
All I have to do is line her and let the freshly applied oil dry a couple days and then buff her out....



Next is the "sister" humidor.... she's Curly Maple & Cherry... 10.25"x8.75"x6.5" and good for around 80 count.....

This one is still unspoken for.... I've added a lid stay to her and will dress her out as requested to whomever wants to secure her....

Just like the other one, she only needs to be lined and the fresh oil needs to dry and then wax & buff.... should be ready to go in a day or two...
