Been collecting woods now for about 20 years.
The photos above show a good sample of them.
There is Osage and bubinga, Imbuia and Blood wood. I have a few pieces of Pink Ivory ($70 per pound) - not good enough to work them still yet! Got some snakewood (French Guyana) - but that's not what you asked.
The woods pictured include; Bocote', Zircote', figiured Maple, Kingwood (handles),Paduak.
Been out of work as finish carpenter for four months now so am getting back into box-making full time - lucky I collected all that wood.
Got a Zebrawood Humidor I'm working on now.
Usually finish with nitrocellulose but am tiring of the 'plastic look' and have a recipe that I'm working on for bee's wax and carnauba wax mixed.
Where on this site have you shown your work? I like to see other's ideas of a good box/humidor.
