We had an odd job at the shop that required a build out of mahogany, and I snagged the cut offs and tails to make a couple of humidors. This one, and a bigger one that I think will become a pistol display case. They took me about a weeks worth of spare time to figure out and build. I'm NOT a finish guy by any means, but I think it came pretty good. The other big case is in a darker color. The damned Spanish cedar I use bled out on me, so I'll have to make new liners. Kind of pissed me off. I morticed out for the hinges thinking we had a few in stock, but we didn't,  so I have to order them still..

Thank you. I'm a wood worker by trade and have a lot of nice machine toys available to me, so it's not too awful hard to make. Still pissed at the cedar bleed.
