Humidor build #3: -Finish

07-06-2016 08:54 PM by Drew Gregory | 1 comment »

So far this project has been an excellent learning process, when it came time to finishing that was no exception. The client was looking for a “super glossy” look to the box. I decided to use a tung oil from Lee valley. The process was very simple. The lid to the humidor has some very fine figure to it so I wont up sanding it to 800 grit to remove all sanding marks. The rest of the box I sanded to 500 grit. I applied a thick first coat and let it soak in for about 10 minu...

Humidor build #1: Building my first humidor #2

06-29-2016 06:46 PM by Drew Gregory | 3 comments »

A little progress update here. I lined the box with spanish cedar, starting with the bottom then the walls and finally the lid. I’m quite happy with how it turned out all pieces are a tight fit and held in place with a couple dots of epoxy. After getting the box lined I fine tuned the fit using my no.5 1/2 which worked really well, better than expected. Time to get the lid attached, thanks to some excellent advice: Well, she s looking good so far! A couple of tips in de...

A friend asked me to make a humidor for him after seeing some of my other projects. Having never made one, of course I said yes.Started off with a simple rabbit joint for the box frame. Added some maple trim on the corners and brought it down flush with my no.5 1/2 Added a walnut ply in a rabbit to the top and bottom Next up the top and bottom caps at 3/8” thick This walnut crotch is from a 4/4 chunk that I book matched to give it a subtle nod to a tobacc...

Cabinet style humidor for safe #1: Looking for input!

11-20-2011 02:06 AM by Mark D. | 1 comment »

Hi All, So to house my growing collection I have three humidors stashed throughout the house. I have a huge safe in my office with a pretty much unused section for storing rifles (which I no longer own). I’ve been toying with the idea of building a cabinet style humidor to go on that side of the safe. Below is a first attempt at designing it in sketchup, and the second pic is a sheet of 1/4” MDF with the elevation drawn for scale in the safe. Has anyone on here built anything sim...

desktop Humidor - finished

07-22-2010 04:55 PM by Rick | 10 comments »

I’m making a small desktop humidor for my cigars. I don’t smoke often at all, but being a woodworker it was hard to resist making one.The purpose of a humidor is to keep cigars at the proper humidity (65-70%) and temperature (70deg). So I decided to make two at once. One for a friend and one for myself. Both cases are walnut. One has a cocobolo lid and the other a birdseye maple lid. Both will feature Brusso hinges. CONSTRUCTION:Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and b...

Humidor in progress

03-17-2010 07:29 AM by dakremer | 3 comments »

this is a humidor I’m making for my brother. It is going to be a travel humidor. I figure it’ll fit about 5-10, depending on the size of the cigars! The end pieces are solid mahogany and the middle is solid (some kind of) birch. I still have A LOT of work to do on it…I’m going to round over the corners, and I’m still thinking of ways to do the inside so its unique and isn’t so boring – the one pictured here is one of my ideas – its two diffe...

Humidor, Any suggestions?

02-25-2010 03:09 AM by dakremer | 3 comments »

So here is my humidor for my brother so far. The sides are oak. I made a convex cut in them with a table saw – first time ever doing it. turned out pretty good. The top and bottom are a hard maple. I got them from my neighbor who had some of his maple trees cut down and milled. I planed it down to 3/4 and cut it to size…. I’m wondering what you guys would do with the maple (top an bottom) Should I just chamfer them? Or leave as is? or plane them down thinner??...

Seeking Humidor Advice

12-20-2007 07:17 PM by Blake | 17 comments »

Calling on the humidor experts: My best friend (since the 2nd grade) likes cigars. I always thought that building a humidor for him would be the perfect project. Unfortunately he already has a very nice, large humidor that his girlfriend gave him as a gift. He lives in Georgia but moves around quite a bit because he is in the army. He also travels several times a year to visit me, his family, friends at other posts, etc. He is in town now (California) for the holidays and yesterday I he...
