Single Cigar Humidor

So my sister-in-law says all my brother-in-law does since he retired is golf and smoke cigars. For our visit to them in a couple weeks I thought I get him a single stoggie humidor and in case it in wood. I bought the humidor on line and found a nice piece of Yew to put it in. This is some hard beautiful wood. It has its own hygrometer in it to keep it at a perfect humidity.
I will have to get him a good cigar (or maybe a cheap one) to put in it. Any suggestions?
Finished with danish oil and lacquer. If he doesn’t like it, at least he will smoke the cigar.
Thanks for looking.

Thanks Monte, Daniel. Being a wood guy I had to do something with wood. Hey, if he ever goes fishing it will float.

I think this is the first single cigar humidor I have ever seen. Nicely done Dave.

Hi Ken. I bought it on e-bay at a some cigar shop. I don’t remember the name of the place. It was $22.00. It should fit any size cigar. When I was looking for one almost any cigar store had them.

Thanks david38. Yea, you don’t see many of these.

makeBrooklyn, thanks. The piece of yew was a perfect size and worked out great.

Thanks Lee. I have never seen one either but I wouldn’t know.

Nice job Dave. Great piece of wood.
Reminds me of my cigar smoking days, 14 years ago, but I never went to that length. if I knew I was going to die tomorrow the first thing I would do is smoke a cigar.

Cuban cigars should be available in the USA now… or pretty soon… yes?

That project obviously deserves the BEST cigars money can buy…

Wasn’t it hard to ‘turn’ the inside of the tube? (or was it done for you?)

Very cool UNIQUE project!

Great job and very COOL!

Tony, I know some guys love those things. I guess if you’re gonna go, go in style. ha ha

Hi Joe. Maybe. But he lives in Florida, so if they do sell them, I’m sure he had one already. LOL.
