    China Cabinet Conversion into Humidor (work in progress)

    Well, I love the look of Aristocrats so I decided to make a poor man's Aristocrat and convert a China Cabinet into a humidor... I just ordered the Spanish Cedar for it today, so it won't be done for some time, but I got a head start today so I figured I'd share.

    The outside




    Doors open




    Top of the left side


    Bottom of the left side


    It comes with lights that I will be replacing with LED's as they create less heat to run, I can install them on each shelve level, and they are AWESOME


    Hole for the lights that still needs to be sealed up


    Initial placement of Clear finishing, low smell caulk


    What it looks like when wiped and still wet


    I sealed all of the openings on the inside aside from the glass as I feel it has a descent seal already, however if it fails to maintain humidity, that is the next step to seal, but I feel it is a wast right now. After I was done sealing the inside and wiping away the excess and pushing it down into the cracks I moved to the outside... back mostly.


    Don't forget the little cracks in the wood!


    And along the bottom.


    Like I said this is a work in progress, and I will take more photos as this comes along... when I finish I might link it all into one post for easy reference later on. Any questions / comments / concerns?

    That looks like an awesome project. That will fit a ton of smokes.
    What are you going to do for humidification?

    Haven't put too much thought into it... I was thinking beads and oust fans.. but I might make a more active system.

    I would guess you'd be better off with active humidification in that beast. Hydra is a good one to look at.
    Ever wonder how a puffer fish keeps a cigar lit under water? Yeah me too!
