This is actually my first project…so it had to be a place to keep my cigars.
All Mahogany, raised panels on all four sides. Spanish Cedar lined. I don’t know if you can see the humidity dial, but its right at 68%.
With the picture, I realize its time to place another order.

Man would you happen to have a basic guide to make one of those? I need a humidor, my humijar is almost full and I mean FULL!

I’ll try to sketchup the layout sometime soon and post it.
Long story short…
Make 4 matching sides as fancy or as simple as you want. Rabbet top and bottom edges. Cut 45 degree edges on every side on table saw. Join all 4 sides with biscuits or splines. Cut, fit, and glue in top and bottom. You now have a sealed box.
Here’s the tricky part…you then cut off one side with a 2” lip on the tablesaw. Reattach it with 4 strong hinges, and a “footlocker” clasp. Line the inside with spanish cedar. Make the lining overlap at the door to form an airseal…NOT airtight, and there actually should be some breathing of the humidor.
Make some drawers and a shelf. No metal inside; just wood on wood runners. Do not finish or stain any inside surface.
Spend a few bucks on a good humidity guage and humidifier.
