Project: John Fletcher Humidor

I thought I'd document the process I go through with a humidor. Somewhat anyway. Here goes:

I bought and started this humidor a long time ago. This is the eBay pic.

eBay pic top. Name plate says John Fletcher.

eBay pic inner. Metal and glass. Sometimes an old humidor can be real elaborate and I hate to mess with it. This one is pretty plain. Plus, I didn't like the metal and glass combo. I took it out.

I learned a valuable lesson on this box. Citrus stripper is not good for brass. The brass edge guards are nailed in place. Inside prongs are bent over. Heads are ground flush. No way to remove the brass so I stripped over it. The bright corner is me trying to bring the finish back. Tough to do in place.

Stained top. I like it. After stripping I thought I had ruined it and stuck it on the back of the shelf for about 7 years. Next step is the oil finish and reassembly of all hardware. This will be a sharp looking box.

Stained front. The brass came out pretty good. Kind of a lightly brushed look. Took an extra couple hours though.
