Default Pulled the trigger on an Aristocrat

I've been hemming and hawing for a while now on whether to stick with the wineador or kick it up a notch with an Aristocrat and finally said "to hell with it". I just got off the phone with Bob and he's building me a black walnut end table with beveled glass door. Now the hard part - waiting.

I happened to mention that folks here on CA had nothing but good things to say about his products and he said "Yeah, there're a great bunch of guys there!" So y'all have him fooled quite well.

My only regret about my aristocrat is not going bigger with it. Can't wait to see yours when it's done. Bob does great work.

...and the wait is over! She's a beauty and was worth the wait. The black walnut is gorgeous.









And for you bastages that are gleefully rubbing their hands together, no, that is technically not an empty humidor . I have a packed-to-the-gills wineador that will be emptied and put into the Aristocrat after I give it five days or so to acclimate.
