Hog! Wow! It looking great.

What kind of wood are you using for the outside of the humidor.

I presume you are lining the inside with Spanish Cedar?

Trays?

"Looked into some French Polishing yet bro'?"

Not yet... let the time catch up with me on this one.. seems I lost a couple weeks somewhere's?

I'll check it out possibly on my next project...

Still working on two other Humi's as well as all the other wood I'm butchering LOL

Shellac looked great on the last one, I'm going to stay with that for this one as well...

Thanks for the tip on that as well a few months back!

And Thanks to you all who've been following the progress on this one.. hope to see some of you this weekend so ya'll can place your bids and BS with the rest of the gang...

I knew I could find the lid. How do you go about getting engrazing like that done? What would I look under in the Yellow pages?
