Built a humidor for my nephew. Sapele, Maple, Burl, and of course fully lined w/ Spanish Cedar.
The handles (and the top panel divider) are Maple I cut with my bandsaw and shaped on my drill press with a spindle sander.
The lower divider in the humidor, I lined each end with tan colored felt so it can be moved to accomodate different sizes of cigars.
I cut the holes in the tray with a forstner bit. I built the tray an inch shallower than the inside so it can be easily gripped for removal. It slides an inch either way and rides on extra panels laminated to the sides.
I inserted a magnet on the right side of the lid (between the cedar panel and burl), which is why you see the cigar (Xikar) cutter hanging there. Both panels joined to a 1/2” plywood piece that I routed a hole out of for the magnet.
It’s a big one. 12”D x 20”L X 10”H.
Let me know if you have questions. It’s pretty straight forward, but you have to be pretty exact on your joinery. I left a 1/16” gap between the lid top cedar and the bottom cedar that sticks up. A little breathing room, but still hold the 70% humidity. He’s had it for over a month and says it’s holding humidity perfectly!
As long as he’s happy with it. So am I.
