Next, place the filler on top of the binder. Roll the binder around the filler, using your vegetable gum to adhere the binder. Once you have the shape you want, use your chaveta to cut off the excess tobacco and then place it in your former. Leave it there for forty-five minutes to an hour. This should dry the leaf enough to wrap it. If not, try placing it on a very low temperature in your oven.

Wrapping It Up

Next, you will want to prepare you wrapper leaf. This can be done while the binder is resting. You will want to smooth out the wrapper like you did the binder. You can also place it on the cutting board and smooth it out that way. Keep it moist so it does not break apart.

Next, cut out a rectangle shape, big enough for the size of cigar you intend to roll. Then, place the binded filler onto the tobacco leaf and gentle roll away from your body. You may have to re-roll several times to get it right, but be patient – it will come to you.

Now to seal the deal. Take some of the vegetable glue and apply it to the edges of the wrapper. Then, cut out a small circle (this will be our cap) and apply it to the head of the cigar with some more of the vegetable glue.

And there you have it, your first hand rolled cigar!

If you want, as an aside, you can even make your own label. If you do, you can apply it the way you think you might – our dear friend the vegetable gum.
