How to build a humidor, extreme playhouse designs and ideas - Test Out

When I first began taking cigars a big more seriously about two years ago, the first problem I ran into was how to store my cigars. Humidors need to be lined with Spanish cedar because of the wood’s aromatic properties as well as its tendency to maintain an appropriate humidity for cigars. I had the idea to build a humidor in a wooden wine box during my years working wine retail.

This thing is way bigger than I thought it would be; my cigars filled my freebie humidor to bursting, but they barely make two layers in this box. After buying several cigars at a 7-11 I realized it was time to take a step and buy a humidor. I probably should have allowed the box plenty of time to air out before I used it, but I wanted to test it as fast as possible so I purchased an Abbey humidor puck for about $6 and a hygrometer from a pet store for $2. I ordered a 4 foot by 2 foot for $25 and split that with my brother-in-law who was also making a humidor of his own.


After a few days left alone, I opened the wine box and discovered a hygrometer that displayed 70% humidity. Two weeks later, my Montecristos arrived from Cuba and I had my first Humidor to age cigars in.
