While veneering is commonly used for humidors, the different veneers and other accent pieces used here provide some very unique colors and textures.
Here’s my latest humidor project, tribute to the Art Deco period. Materials: Teal birdseye maple veneer, solid ebony accents, curly maple accents, macassar ebony veneer, 3/8″ Spanish cedar lining inside. Weight: approx 23 lbs, finished in lacquer. Dimensions: 18-3/4″ x 13-1/4″ x 6-1/2″. Capacity: approx 150 cigars (6 x 54) Has one dovetailed tray and 1-1/2″ space underneath.

This unique project could arguably be considered more beautiful than anything that could be put in its drawers.
This is a jewelry box that I finished just in time for my daughters birthday. The case is curly maple. I popped the grain with amber dye, sanded back to reveal the long grain.
The front door and the drawer fronts were cut from a piece of Indonesian Rosewood that I book-matched.
The legs and pulls are also rosewood. The standoffs for the legs are walnut.
The finish is home-brewed Maloof oil. I applied Butcher’s wax a couple of weeks after the oil cured.
The drawers are all lined with red felt and have maple dividers. - Al Bibbero; Boulder, CO
