I have decided I want to make myself a humidor, and while I’d like to avoid extravagance to an extreme, I would still like to make a piece that will stand out as a finely crafted piece. I’m thinking that by keeping the design somewhat basic, using nice joinery and keeping the lines nice, clean and flowing, this should be able to be achieved with relative ease
So first, these are some areas I’d like some help:
Some suggestions on a hygrometer and humidifier that can be installed in the box, either on the underside of the lid or in the box itself (maybe make a wide divider to contain them?). I don’t need the “best of the best”. If I can get a nice humidifier and hygrometer for under $40, that would be ideal.
If you have built your own humidor, or have a nice commercial model and would like to share a picture or two, that would be very, very much appreciated! I’d love to see how others have designed theirs, as it will help me with ideas for my own.
I will be using Black Cherry for the exterior, and possibly adding in a contrasting wood as well. I’m thinking that complex joinery may be a way to add some style without being too “over the top”. Having an Incra Positioner, the “Double-Double Dovetail” using a contrasting wood is always an option, and may be my choice.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
