Default Show us your humidor

I noticed there are a lot of BOTL here. We have a cigar thread that has really taken off. Now, show us what you use to keep all that leafy goodness in! I'll start:





Currently have it filled with about 200 sticks. Made of solid cherry, black walnut, and the inside is 1/2 inch spanish cedar. Hand made by my dad. I have another one for sale but comes with a table and felt lined drawer.

I like my humidor small, It keeps me from buying too many cigars.

Me too! These are the original dimensions. Not the ones I gave him to follow... When he gave it to me I was surprised how big "my" measurements were. Then he said he made the original..

Boss just came back from some island that specializes in Cigars... I got to pick a few out.

Mine is the red box on the shelf, as you can see I have few more cigars than the humidor holds. Fortunately maintaining 60% humidity in Il is not too difficult. I may just line that whole cabinet with Spanish Cedar.

Lining that sounds like a good idea. It's certainly big enough.

Here are mine. The top one is the free one I just scored from my friend. It smells amazing when you open it, but I'm still working on getting it up to the right humidity to rehabilitate the cigars it came with. The bottom one was a score also: my uncle gave it to me awhile ago when he quit smoking. Both simple, but they both work great.

I have no idea why the photo is sideways (it isn't on my computer).

I love the smell of a humidor.
