(OT) Building a small humidor box

#1

Post by Moses_Yoder »

I am just in the beginning stages, the imagining part, of building a small humidor box for the former COO of our company that retired this spring. He is a cigar aficionado and often gave me cigars, I considered that my bonus. He never did that for anyone else in the shop. I will work on designing this while I finish the coffee stand. Wondering if anyone here has built one. It will be lined with Spanish cedar, I have a local source. I am planning birdseye maple sides with walnut trim and walnut burl veneer top. I need to find some method of humidifying it that is practical and not messy and then also a good humidity gauge to inset into the top that can be read on the outside. Any tips, tricks or ideas would be appreciated.

Moses,
Check out this video for to see a humidor being made. Quite a craftsman.
If you Google "humidor plans," there are lots on the web. You have the skills to make whatever you want, but can see some other's ideas.



I have pretty minimal woodworking skills, but made a jewelry box for my granddaughter one year from walnut on our farm. Cut the boards, stick dried, sized, planed and joined it all together. I don't remember how many days it took, but it was a labor of love. She just took it with her to her first year of college.
