Handcrafted Wooden Cigar Boxes : A Tutorial

17 Comments

Crafting a wooden cigar box can be a fun project, especially if you plan to gift it to somebody who loves to smoke cigars. These are actually a very trendy yet royal gift choice for men of all ages. Thus, making it personally for gifting purpose can be a very special experience. Though, one is expected to have some basic woodworking knowledge to make a cigar box. Mentioned below are few ideas to handcraft cigar boxes. Check them out:


Materials
Wooden cigar boxes are mainly creased with cedar wood as it is the most fitting of all the woods to maintain apt humidity level for cigars. Besides, cedar is also known to have a pleasant fragrance. Generally the interior of the finest cigar boxes are always lined with cedar wood, while the exterior is often made of hardwood. Hardwoods refer to walnut, mahogany, redwood, spruce and oak woods. It is a personal choice to make the cigar box completely from either of the woods or in combination of cedar and hardwood.


Assembling
Slice the hardwood as per the calculated measurements using a table saw and miter attachment. Next you would need to rout out the corner joints with the help of a corner joint bit and router. Gather the entire box by patting wood glue onto the linking sides of the corner joint, and fix the sides together and let them dry. While the other technique is to nail the sides together with small nails or staples.


Wood Finish
An ideal cigar box is conventionally finished by sanding the three facets of the box namely- top, sides and corners using a 120-grit and 360-grit sand paper. Thus, for finishing round out the corners with sand paper manually until it offers an impeccable look. Afterwards, one can use a hand-applied stain which is later hand-buffed using a rag for a natural, antique wood feel. Stain application with a brush provides the box a sophisticated style as well as designer finish.

After I originally left a comment I appear to have
clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive
four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me
from that service? Kudos!
