About 5-6 years ago I was at the peak of my cigar smoking. I had just left my gig as a premium cigar sale rep and was really starting to buy up cigars. Also, this was the about the time I was turned on to CC and really started taking a liking to them. I was in the market for a cabinet humidor, but everything I really wanted was just soooooo expensive and the affordable cabinets IMO just were not very good. So, I decided to wait until I could afford exactly what I wanted. A former customer of mine gave me a call and said he had 3 cabinet humidors for sale, cheap, and that I should come look at them. After dragging my feet for about a week I finally went and thank god I did. 2 of the 3 were already sold and the price was so unbelievable I purchased it right then and there. Not sure if I've posted pics of my humi before, but in case I didn't here it is. Yes, I know it's empty, I just moved and am in the process of seasoning it. Should be filled this week!!!
Naturally, once I got into pipe smoking I wanted something cool to keep my pipes & tobacco in. I look at 2 Cousins pipes rack, which are amazing, but realized to get the size I wanted would probably be pretty costly. I knew I would prob never own more than 10 pipes or so, but would need a considerable amount of space for tobacco storage eventually. Well, as luck would have it, an Uncle of mine recently retired and moved to Florida leaving a storage shed filled with items he didn't take when he moved. He was always in to restoring old family members' furniture instead of going out and buying everything new. So after getting the green light to help myself to anything I wanted in his storage shed I came across this beauty!
I had no clue what the heck I was going to do with it, but when I saw it I thought it was too nice to just let go. The other day it hit me that it would be a perfect cabinet for my pipes & tobacco. So I started filling it up. The top middle drawer I have filled with my pipes and accessories. The next drawer has all of my open tobacco, while the door on the right side has all of my cellared tobacco. The great thing about this is it's so big it will be years until I outgrow it and in reality I probably never will. 2 of the middle drawers are completely empty as is the big bottom drawer and door on the right.
The benefits of being a bachelor! Cigar & Pipe cabinets in the middle of the living room? No problem...who is going to say no!? lol Fly tying table next perhaps!!! Hope you guys enjoyed the pics.
