    Beauty and the Beast..my humidors.

    So..I've been shopping for a new large humidor,and as I looked..I said to the salesperson..
    "This fancy-schmancy wood/glass cabinet doesn't seal any better than my shop paint locker"..and it hit me.
    Why not use a storage cabinet that does not cost a thousand bucks?
    The steel cabinet was purchased for $125 at Sams club.


    Some 1" magnetic strips seal the doors like a vault,and with the use of some super weather strip adhesive to seal on one surface,they work perfect.
    The outer surface of the magnetic tape was sticky,so I stuck some cigar bands on for laughs.
    The automatic Humidifier works effortlessly to keep the interior at whatever humidity I desire,and in one week has used barely any water.
    I have another RH meter on the top shelf and it reads the same as the control unit.

    The magic box...

    The goodies..


    My first humidor..I use as a dry box,and a kind of quick grab box..



    It stays about 55% humidity with beads.

    I have about $350 total into the Beast,and it holds as much,if not more,than the fancy units I was looking at that cost well over a grand.

    It's not pretty,but I am probably the only one that will ever see it.(except for you-all)

    I like to think of myself as thrifty,not cheap....

    I love it. That's got to hold as much as 4 giant coolers, if not more.

    Awesome.

    That's a great idea. Really the only thing you need is something that seals with cigar boxes in it. Some of the humidors look really nice, but if you want to put your money into the smokes, you can't go wrong with just a regular cabinet and a humidifier.

    Nice work!

    I think of it as cost effective not cheap.

    Wow, you must not even need to go to you local B&M with all those cigars, looks awesome.

    By the way, I can tell your thrifty by the PMC ammo to the left of your humidor , it's good stuff to practice with...

    Thanks all.The money I saved put a few of those boxes on the shelves,and that's what it really is all about.Chrome don't get you home
    The inexpensive PMC ammo shoots the tightest groups and has the least malfunctions out of some of my pistols.Just because you spend more does not always mean you get more.I will try a few hundred rounds of different ammo through a pistol before I can tell what it prefers.I feed my firearms what they like. (me too...)
    I don't have a local B&M..I am out in the willy-wags,so I have to be my own B&M.

    I use PMC on most of my 556, price is great and I get very good shot groups as well....

    Good thinking! I love seeing unique humidor setups. I like the bands bordering the cabinet, too. Great job!

    That is amazing man, I love to see people take a commercial cost and throw it to the wind. Well freaking done man! And what a nice little stash too!
