Segmented ashtray for cigars only.

My woodowrking has directed me to building Humidors and "Cigar only" ashtrays. Here is an ashtray I finished last night. It's made of Curly Maple & Walnut. I think there is 196 pieces.
Cigar smokers typically enjoy the finer things in life. A nice ashtray can make a nice addition. Please enjoy.

That is stunning!
I would cringe and close my eyes when someone used it for ashes.

Thanks very much everyone.
I get between 200 & 250 depending on the wood but I usually trade 1/2 the price for good cigars.

beautiful job. I'm like the others I'd cringe if I saw someone put out a cigar in that. What finish did you use?
My good friend who is a cigar smoker went to a restaurant. At the end of dinner they came around and asked if he would like a cigar. He said sure, not asking the price. When he checked out it was more expensive than the dinner.

So cool! I love seeing something I haven't seen done before. What kind of finish do you put on it that will resist the heat? How do you do the cigar holders? Do you use a core box bit and a jig of some kind? However you do it, nice work!

I really like that outstanding cigar ashtray.

Too bad do not have some of these pens to set in the ash tray.

Quite stunning to think that there are that many peices in it and the time that you have put into the peice. I could not even imagine try to cut all those peices and fit them perfectly together. I think I will stick to less than 10 peices for something...haha. Very nice though.

That is an outstanding work of art, I only hope who ever uses it has a glass insert to protect your work of art. Do you have any advice where to get plans for a humidor? My neighbor would like me to make one for him out of spanish cedar.

Bill,

Nice ashtray. I am interested in how you did the glue up for the bottom.

That is an awesome piece...

Anybody who put ashes or a cigar in it at my house, would get their "i" dotted.

p

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Thanks so very much everyone.
It's actually my secret goal when I make them. Test the client to see if they have the berrys to put an ash in it. I use automotive clear coat for the finish. I haven't had anyone contact me to refinish one yet.
As far as the pens go, those are awesome!!! I have a post here asking for help in getting started in pen turning. When I build a humidor, it would be great to send it with a complimenting pen as a little surprise. I'm really going to have to step it up on pen turning.
I have a few other turnings I'll have to post. One segmented vessel I did has 1495 individual pieces. Drove me batty building it. It did win the wood turners challenge on FWW website a while ago.

Wow!!! That is awesome. I love the segments, and the shape and the finish. Great choice of woods and definitely a great execution of a fantastic project. Thanks for sharing this one. I'm in awe.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
