My buddies and I at work have a sort of a “cigar club” and we needed a way to keep our fine cigars fresh and protected. So, many of them commissioned me to make custom travel humidors for them. These are some of my favorite ones. The first is walnut and sapele, the second walnut and spalted maple, and the last is padauk and curly maple. These humidors have keyed mitered corners and are lined with spanish cedar. Rare earth magnets (concealed under maple accents) hold the lid closed and hold the humidification device in the lid. The humidification device is made out of a thirstystone coaster.

Well done. Can you tell us about the thirsty stone? I assume you have to “charge” it and then it humidifies for a certain period? Great idea.

Handsome design.

@ghazard…thirstystone is basically just sandstone. I soak the stone in distilled water for about 5 min until all the air bubbles escape out of the pores. The stones dont hold water for a long time like foam or beads do, but each charge lasts about 2 weeks in a seasoned humidor, which to me is long enough for a travel humidor. Thanks for the question.

Have your say...
