Are you a hands-on type of person?  Do you love the rewarding feeling that comes from completing do-it-yourself projects?  If so, here is one such project that will guide you through all the steps of how to build a coolidor for your cigars right from the comfort of your own home.

Why Build a Coolidor?

Before we get into the steps to building your own coolidor (aka coolerdor), let’s first discuss some of the reasoning doing so.  If you are not really a huge fan of Spanish cedar humidors, homemade coolidors are a great alternative.  Why?  First of all, they’re more affordable, which is important if you are on a limited budget and don’t feel like spending a lot of money on professionally manufactured cigar storage.   Some cigar fans even believe that coolidors are better than their fancier humidor counterparts.  Second, coolidors are great for additional storage if you plan on increasing your cigar collection and need that extra space to supplement any current humidor you may have.  Third, by creating your own coolidor, you’ll have that great feeling of accomplishment once the project is finished.

Now, there are obviously many variations of coolidors out there, as some cigar enthusiasts can get very crafty and innovative with their creations.  The basic setup, however, pretty much involves the usual suspects of a cooler, hygrometer, humidifier such as humidification beads, and Spanish cedar.  When combined, all of these ingredients give you a large, reliable storage space for your cigars. Sure, coolidors may not be as sexy as humidors, but we are taking substance over style here.  With all of that being said, let’s jump into the process of how to build a coolidor.
