Secret Cocobolo Humidor

The Secret Cocobolo humidor is a truly one-of-a-kind humidor using one of my favourite and unique exotic hardwoods:  Exotic Cocobolo.  Cocobolo is an oily wood that is very difficult to work with - however with some patience and the correct technique - the wood gives up it's smooth, satin and rich character.

In order to get the perfect finish the Cocobolo must be sanded in 6 time consuming stages.  150-200-400-600-800-1000 grit sandpaper.  Then hand-rubbed and oiled to bring out the beautiful cognac tones. 

This is my Craftsman, Ryan Shervill's design in it's entirety.  He also came up with a brilliant idea to provide a secret way to open the lid on the humidor without sometimes unsightly latches or keyholes.

Pressing down on the ebonized walnut trip on the right of the humidor releases the latching mechanism invisible on the exterior.  It's a brilliant design.
