Default New Humidor Build

The build concept:

10 box, 300-400 loose humidor with plug-n-play cooling and humidification system

Size of a end table

No more than $400 total build

I took a donor wine chiller, used Cigar Chest Co. humidor from a closed bar. I added a thermostat temp controller and a Hydra humidification system w/3 additional fans.

I insulated the glass, bottom and back of the humidor. I sealed all the seams and lined the two sides and door with cedar.

I added lights and cigar labels pressed in the glass door for looks.

It will hold 68/68 without any issue and has great air circulation.

I'm going to add a wireless temp/humidity monitoring system and a brass plate with my name covering the cigar chest co logo.

Time to season it and fill it up.

It was an interesting build and I may try something larger.

Concept test:







Finished Product

Thanks everyone.

If anybodies interested I'll list the steps, parts, tools and costs.

It really not a hard build. The design was the hardest part (and the most fun part) I built this in my gun room with limited battery powered tools.
