Just finished my latest project and I thought I would share. A little background first, I have a few humidors that I have built and they are quickly becoming too small for my cigars, however one I built was way too big to put upstairs and I didn't want to have my cigars scattered around. That's part one, second part of this story involves my awesome wife who lets me put my guitars and amp in the living room, but the problem is with the accessories and cables - they get all over the place and it doesn't look good. With that in mind I decided to build an amp stand with a drawer to hold my guitar stuff in it, so I thought if I was going to make one drawer, why not make a second and line it with Spanish Cedar to make a humidor.
With that being said, here are some pics while being built - nothing too exciting
Here's the final product next to one of my guitars and my VOX amp
With the drawer slid out. The drawers are made out of scrap plywood that I've had from various other projects, I stained them dark to help hide some of the blemishes of the plywood. I added a Lexan window to keep the weight down and so I can look in without having to lift the lid all the time. Since this is only for me I didn't do much finishing on the exterior of the drawer, I did take a lot of care with the Spanish cedar on the inside.
With the lid open. I reused the tray from my other humidor - I need to get some more Spanish Cedar to build a larger tray made to fit in here. The paper towel under the humidifier is just to be safe after adding water. The space inside is 27.5"w x 14.5"L x 6" H
Without the tray - I'm getting a 1/2lbs of beads to put in here, but for now I am combining my various humidity methods into one place to get it all up to a stable humidity
What's left to do:
- Make a holder for the beads when they arrive
- Make one or two stackable trays that are fit to the inside
- Fine tune the drawer alignment and gap at the top
- Remove some of the cigars from the back right corner and replace them with some CC's after a vacation
- Minor touch-ups here and there if I feel like it
