I debated on that myself. I've seen a couple of converted china cabinets and part of me wanted to hit the easy button with a yard sale conversion. For better or worse, just about every piece of furniture I looked at locally was either ungodly expensive or made out of fake wood that I knew I'd be disappointed with six months down the road. I did find one solid wood end table cabinet that could have worked, but by the time I figured up the modifications I'd have to make to turn it into what I want, I was going to spend nearly as much time and money on it as just starting from scratch.

I don't have any illusion that my cabinet will seal better than a tupperdore, and I could have saved a lot of headache by just buying a big Yeti cooler or forking out the cash for a commercially manufactured cabinet with all the bells and whistles. But, my woodwork hobby is one of the outlets I use to decompress and be less of an uptight jerk.

Wood is honest, simple, forgiving, and I'm rambling. If you have a circular saw and drill, you can build a humidor. If you've got access to more tools than that, it gets pretty easy. Just have to make the time to do it, which really isn't that much. Everything I've done up to this point was accomplished in one afternoon.

Thanks for the encouragement, fellas. Knowing that somebody is still following this is exactly the kick in the backside I needed to get this humidor back on track.

Unfortunately, it's been a grueling couple of months at work since my last update to this build thread, and I've made no progress on personal projects.

However... my pistol competition season has come to a close until January (another addicting hobby that takes more time and money than I care to track) and we've got a tropical storm coming in this weekend, which means I'll have a good reason to hide out in my workshop for a bit. I'll have tomorrow morning off to smoke cigars, drink coffee, and I should be able to get at least *something* done in my shop. I won't finish this weekend, but I'll at least make some progress.

Yeah I agree... the last part you said here is why Iím gonna give it a shot. Iíd rather have simmering I built/made, even if itís for the same class as buying one.

Thank you! I'd hesitate to call any of my wood projects "awesome," but I am enjoying them and I appreciate the compliment.

This thing is progressing, but slowly. I have moved a little beyond the last update, and I will post more pictures shortly. My company is going through a bit of a blending with another company and the last several weeks have been insane. I put in 104 hours last week (not counting the calls and emails I did from home or a hotel room) and my last full day off of work was... I don't know... sometime in late September or early October I think.

The good news is that we're coming close to the end of the year and my boss has notified me that I have no choice but to take a couple weeks of vacation, so there will be some shop time in the near future to finish this project off properly.

Very nice job on the humidor I built a cabinet size humidor also and when it came to humidity I experimented with something a little different just a simple cop size humidifier and a humidity controller on Amazon and it's been working very nice for about a year now. It's just a cup size ultrasonic humidifier the humidity comes out like smoke it's not wet when you put your hand over it and it's hooked up to the Rain Bird humidity controller. The man at my neighborhood smoke shop uses the same type of humidity ultrasonic but he has a larger much larger unit and he's very happy with it so here's a picture of my cabinet.
