I made this for my father as a Christmas gift, this was my first attempt at making a humidor and after all is said and done I am happy with it. I mad everything out of mahogany and added an inlay of Quilted Maple. The inside of the box was lined with Spanish Cedar and seasoned for about 3 days. I do have to say that my patience was tested a few times on this and knowing it was only my first attempt at one of these I am fairly happy with the results. Holds about 45 Cigars so realistically this thing will never be full between my father and I!

Humidor looks great. I miss a good cigar. Nice work.

Very nice. This is on my list of projects not sure where on the list or when I will get to it though. I see the humidity gauge but what did you use for the humidifier?

I found these bags at my local smoke shop but you can find them on amazon as well. Just soak the bag they give you in Distilled water for about 5 minutes and you are good for a few months, depending on the humidity of your house of course.
