Yep I puff on stogies....[Don Rafael maduros, Dominican Republic]
I get my cigars in wooden cigar boxes.
I note that some seem to be made from really cheap pressed wood.
I suspect it's low end press board.
But, some are nicely made and are of real wood. I'd say about 3/16"-1/4" thick
give or take.
I wonder if any of you woodworkers have any clue as to typically what wood
is used to make a wooden cigar box? There is a cedar insert, a slice maybe 1/32" thick
Oh, the cigar size is 7 1/2x50 [typical]
Some of my boxes even have nice hinges and latches. Other boxes just have a slide top.
I wonder if any of you have recycled cigar box wood for other projects?
Yes, I also use the boxes for storage and find them useful just as they are.
Dimensions are about 8" long, 4 1/2" wide, 4 1/4" tall and the sides are a very nice
1/8" box joint. The top is a slide type with grooves/dado's on the sides.
I think the thickness is close to 3/16" +/-
Some of the boxes are stained but most are raw wood.
