Showcase cover image for Armoire Humidor

Project Information

I have two bad habits I combined for this project - woodworking and my cigars. I was tired of storing my expanding cigar collection in giant tupperware tubs - in my workshop no less.
So I created this armoire sized humidor to house my cigars. Dimensions are approximately 72"H x 40"W x 22" D. It's approximately 35 cubic feet of internal storage space.
The carcass is built from African mahogany with panels I veneered with some beautiful Cuban Mahogany. The veneered panels for the doors have a small inlaid marquetry panel of a lit cigar done in mirror image between the doors.
The interior was lined with Spanish Cedar that I resawed to 1/4" thick and ship lapped. Installed on all inside surfaces of the cabinet including the doors. Built a drawer and shelves from the cedar also. Sealed the door gaps with a 1/4" window/door seal to keep the humidity in. The 4th picture shows the cabinet interior with the lights (just some simple LED puck lights with a wireless remote control switch) and humidifiers installed. There are 3 - 1.5 quart fan humidifiers wired to a controller unit that measure temp and humidity. On the top there are two small fans also wired into the controller that run every 20 minutes to keep the air circulating inside the cabinet.
The last picture shows the cabinet is already filling upl! Thanks for looking.

Now that you have expanded from your "tupador" to larger quarters, you'll realize that you are running low on the cigars. Time to stock up!

Nice work!
