Humidor For Cigars

Here is a Humidor I made for a friend who requested it. I can’t remember what kind of wood this was. It was a board I saw at Cross-cut Hardwoods at Seattle. The color and the grain attracted me, so I bought it,thinking I would make something special out of it. It was a 1X6X about 6’ long smooth 2 sides.


Looks good. How did you make the pull? Looks like too small a piece to run through the router to get that profile as-is.

Tim, I used a 1/8" quarter round bit in my Dremel, and a 1/4’ dia, bullnose bit. and the small Dremel Routerbase.

The handle is doweled in place with toothpick 2 dowels and glue.

When I do thiese small pieces, I start with stock that is 3 to 4 times longer than needed . That way I can hold onto the ends and make cuts between the ends ,then chop out what I want to save and throw the ends away.It saves fingers to do it that way.

I’ve never used the Dremel router base (did not even know it existed!). Perhaps you could demo that at our Zoom meeting? Thanks.
