Default Aristocrat Humidors to discontinue building humidors

For all those who had ordering an Aristocrat Humidor on their bucket list....Bob Staebell has stopped taking orders.

From the website http://www.aristocrathumidors.com

"We have thoroughly enjoyed creating Aristocrat Humidors for our clients over the last 25 years, and it is now time to slow the pace down a bit. Our focus will be to continue providing sales and service of our precision electronic humidification systems for new and existing commercial and residential humidors.

We are closing the humidor building side of the business. I look forward to ongoing contact with current clients and greeting new customers for Aristocrat Humidification systems over the coming years."

Best investment I ever made was having my cabinet built. I wish Bob well with his retirement.

Oh holy crap! The world of humidors has felt a tremor in the force.

I was so looking forward to getting a mate for the cabinet that he build for me.

This is the picture of mine that he took when it was made. The cherry is a much deeper, redder shade now.



His description but it was made in the in-between 22.5 size. I think that he just forgot when he posted it.

That's a shame. He's always been such the craftsman, and we've been particularly lucky to have him close by. I'd been meaning to ask him to build me a singles drawer for mine. Guess I missed my chance.

If your system is like mine, you can get those wicks on Amazon.

Mine still has the older LCD controller. One of these days I probably should update the system. Can't blame Bob for tapering off but we're really losing a craftsman.

As beautiful as they are, it doesn't look like there is something magical about them that someone else couldn't do.

Good time for another custom cabinet maker to focus on humidors. The humidification system is pretty rudimentary IMO and have plenty of room for innovation.

I am not knocking their product at all. With a small investment in promotion, someone else could be at Bob's level in 3-5 years easily.

There is nothing magical about space travel that someone else couldn't do.

Agree. When my humidification system crapped out after 5 days he shipped a new one sight unseen and waited for the return.

What's next best option? I have been off the site and out of the game for a while. Came here looking for the name of the aristocrat since I could not remember who made the best humidor. Only to find this.

I've heard some people talk well of the Avallos if you're definitely looking for a cabinet humidor. Lots of people have gone to the converted wine coolers since I've been on the forums, but that is obviously a different look.

I make enough from my day job.

What is unique about his humidors that a custom cabinet maker couldn't do?

I didn't know that about space travel; thanks!
