| A humidor and a jewelry box are often
about the same size. In this case, they are precisely the same size. And with this project plan, you can build either, or both. The exterior is the same -- mahogany with walnut edging. Inside, things get interesting. The Humidor has a special lining and some unique hardware to maintain temperature and humidity. The Jewelry Box features a tray and a velvet liner. Either way, it's a treasure box -- both beautiful and functional.
This project was originally published in Woodsmith No. 112.
CONSTRUCTION: The Humidor / Jewelry Box is 13" wide x 10" deep x 5" high. Ours is made of solid mahogany with walnut edging. The humidor has Spanish cedar lining.
