good looking humidor – funny, my son just asked me to make one for him and I’m lost

Thanks. And yes , Humidors were a mystery to me at first also but it’s basic box construction with the performing parts being the hinges and material on the inside. Watch a few videos online, build a couple of practice boxes and I’m sure your son will end up with a nice humidor. And being lost is a good thing sometimes … I get lost in my projects all the time.

That crotchy looking piece of Oak is awesome. It says, hey, why don’t you smoke a cigar today.

Nice build.

Where do you source your humidor parts?

Very nice.

Do you build for a specific sized cigar? Like a panatella vs a Churchill?

Where did you get the hydrometer?

Excellent work.

Nice clean lines, stately without going overboard, me like!

The interior layout is excellent, I like the medium storage location and out-of-the-way humidity gauge.

Fine work Mattthew!

Great box Mattthew! I have a good friend that smokes cigars, I may have to see if he has one already.

Thanks for all the views and comments. Following up on some questions…..
Woodcraft is my source for hardware and Spanish cedar at the moment but I do like what I see out of Rockler on hardware. I did not build with a specific cigar in mind, just measured / went by what I enjoy smoking, however this one holds Churchill’s perfectly in the left and right compartments and Toro’s in the middle. It will hold up to about 50 sticks. The analog Hydrometer is from woodcraft, although I was informed that people are preferring digital hydrometer’s these days.
