Made this for a man who reckons he smokes a lot of cigars! I guess he must do to need something this big. Made of solid Bubinga with an ebony details. Fully lined with Spanish cedar. Really fun project

That’s a great build. Very handsome. I like the overlap/inset combination door. That makes a ton of sense. I’m about to start a build of an even larger cabinet and came looking for ideas.

Nice job! Like the contrasting wood details.

Am planning to start a cabinet humidor build soon also. Interested in knowing what you used to seal the door. Is that a thin weather striping? Some other gasket material?

Any guidance appreciated … thanks.

With smaller units, the seal is typically accomplished with a good fit a stepped profile. So, rather than the lid lying down on the box bottom, it would have a sleeve that extends into the box bottom, forming a good seal. In these photos, it looks like he did a similar approach and used magnets to keep it closed. You need a humidifier in a cabinet, so you’re not trying to get it air tight anyway.

Have your say...
