I decided to build a humidor for my brother in law for Christmas last year, but quickly realized I needed some experience and education to pull it off.
Little did I know….
After two or three failures, Oh wait, those are ‘feedback” riight? I managed to finish the build.
My thanks to all the lumberjocks who guided me on my journey and helped me to finally succeed.
Here are the specs.
Solid 1/2” Maple with 1/4” box joints, 1/4” Spanish Cedar liner fully stress relieved for the 70% target humidity it will be charged to.
Finish is 4 coats of Marine Spar Varnish Urethane final wet sanded with a 4000 grit Mirka sanding pad.
Inside width is 11.25”, inside depth ( front to back ) is 8.5” – large enough to hold all sizes of cigars up to and including a Double Corona
Second tier rack to allow another row of cigars to be stacked over the bottom row without touching them so the air and moisture can circulate.
