Currently I have a couple acrylic jars for my humidors. They house my DE Upper shelf sticks, and my C&A 2nds. I have about 15-20 more sticks being delivered this week. I ordered a nice tupperware container used by a top youtube cigar reviewer, also some spanish cedar veneer sheets on the way. Should be a fun project. I will add more when the stuff arrives.

Cedar or SPANISH CEDAR? There's a BIG difference.

Tupperware can be bought at a lot of different places....Walmart carries a 2.5 gallon size for $10...holds quite a bit of cigars....200 at least. You can use boxes to hold them inside the tupperware that are made of cedar. One doesn't have to go crazy setting up a Tupperador....fairly simple and using Bovedas is one of the best medias along with KL. Be careful following "Top U Tube" reviewers.....some of them are just ordinary folks who got their info from Cigar Forum regular hobbyists. All you need to do is keep things simple...don't get carried away and spend more money than you need to....tons of threads on here that keep things simple for you to learn from otherwise you will end up spending more money on things that some try to tell you have to do.....total investment for a Tupperador is literally $15.....$20 if you include the Hygro.

Spanish cedar. My mind goes wonky after a 12 hour night shift. 😄

I'm only about $20 into this project for the container and the Spanish cedar veneer. I already have the Boveda's and a good hygro. Probably won't be able to do much more until Wednesday. Thanks for the tips.

I don't understand the phrasing (though you're not the first to put it this way). What is there to "build"? Ya' get a plastic tupper and ya' throw your cigars in with a Boveda. Done. If you're adding Spanish cedar maybe you'll season for a couple of days first. Then done.

BTW, thin SC is okay for the smell, but doesn't do much else. Thick solid SC, like good humidors are made from or the the trays many of us use in our tuppers, acts as a buffer helping to maintain stable RH.

It's presumed that SC became the traditional material for humidors and cigar boxes because of its resistance to rotting in humid conditions and availability in cigar producing regions. We've come to associate the scent with cigars, but that's an extraneous benefit, not its primary function. And though some will tell you it has something to do with keeping bugs away, that's BS - it does nothing to deter or prevent cigar beetles and wood mites. IOW. veneer is fine if all you want ti the smell, but if you want it to really do its job you'll need more substantial pieces.

Donít be frightened or intimidated by these old guys. Their bark is loud. Beware the cane.
Read lots here for great info.
YouTube is okay for some stuff, especially
reviews and advice by smokin giovanni are the most accurate. Heís kind of a guru for the industry.

Inside jokes running amok in here.....as Jack said before I was going to....use the KISS plan with tupperware...the less you overthink things the better or you'll drive yourself crazy and you haven't even gone down the "How do I deal with a humidor seasoning and high RH/Temps " road yet. Take some time to really read threads on here....SEARCH the topics you have an interest in and by all means stay focused on the answers until you understand them in totality. Lots of people will stop reading the answers and then rush into "fixing" things and find out that they didn't read enough or far enough ahead ......there is literally every answer to any question that has come along in the last 20 years.

Free advice here....even though Rondo made me almost defecate my pants with the Smokin Giovanni reference....between that bozo or a few others that claim to be Gurus ....same for a couple of women who have their own Utube channels that dress like they are part time dock hustlers and know everything about cigars and some scattered Reviewers who make a living taking Payola from Manufacturers and then review those cigars as to how wonderful they are....it's best to take a grain of salt with them. We have Salty ole Veterans who run rings around all of them in contrast to what those people think they know....our Guys have forgotten more info than these "so called Reviewers" have remembered.
