This is my new humidor I built for myself. It’s been done for a while now, that’s why it’s filled with sticks! I finally got around to having my photographer snap some quality pics and he wanted to leave the cigars in the shots…
It’s made from red birch and walnut. Finished with a base coat of shellac inside and out and then lined with spanish cedar and finished with a homemade varnish on the outside.
A couple of things done different with this humidor is the bottom is 3/4” solid granite and I lined the sides and lid with solid foam insulation. All this was done in an effort to keep the temperature regulated inside better. However, it didn’t work quite as well a I had hoped, only keeping the temp down on avg. 1&1/2* lower than my other humidor. Oh well, wouldn’t have known if I didn’t try, right?
I also made a small box for the Humidity beads (which keep it at 65%) and used it as a divider also
