Briar Cigar Holder

Post by SlowToke » Thu Mar 16, 2017 6:04 pm

I recently made this cigar holder for a friend mostly out of curiosity and to see if I could. It has two inserts so it can hold three different gauges of cigar. It was fun to make but took way too long to make it a profitable venture; especially considering there isn't likely a big market at the price it would be even remotely profitable. I thought you guys might enjoy seeing it though.

Neat. I like the idea for the inserts. Really don't like soggy, unraveling cigar ends. The holder seems like a good idea that just died out.

Beautiful! I like the interchangeable insert idea.
