Im looking to make something for a friend of mine for his 50th bday. He's an big cigar aficionado. He loved the humidor I made him a few years back. Id like to make something else in the same genre.
Doing a search on some cigar sites I ran across one that had ashtrays made of wood. Some nice burls w/ a turned bowl in the middle. Heres a few pics of what Im looking to do : http://www.kolinskyartbrushes.com/woodenboxes/cw_ash.html
I figure id make one to complement the humidor.
My question is what finish do I use on it so it wont burn? Wood + Burning cigar end = bad mojo.
Anyhelp would be great.
