Woodworker: In this white oak and handforged mild steel humidor, there are 48 raised panels in the sides, cut from oak and inserted into their half-lap framework from behind, secured with flexible adhesive at the corners. They are then locked in with a layer of plywood that sits between them and the Spanish cedar liner. The two large panels in the lid are captured in a groove. The steel frame is assembled with a combination of welding and rivets hammered flat and tight while hot. The humidor is 15-in. deep by 21-in. wide by 17-in. tall. The lid weighs 12 lb. and has a custom-made hinge to support it. The finish is shellac, nitrocellulose lacquer, polyurethane, and wax.
