A Look at the Humidor Plan
There are many styles of humidors that range from the smaller
traveling humidor to the large cabinet and even walk-in room
humidors. By far, the most popular humidor is the glass top
humidor also referred to as the desktop humidor.
While many people will choose to purchase an already made
humidor, for those who are more inclined, the art of making one's
own humidor can be a very appealing idea and lend bragging rights
at the same time. By making one's own humidor, the cigar
aficionado can choose the materials, the size, the design and the
specific humidifier for his or her own personal creation. The
only limit is the imagination of the individual. Whether one
chooses to make a simple, rectangular box design or one decides
to be more elaborate, choosing to tool the wood with intricate
designs, there is no wrong approach.
Performing a simple search for a humidor plan, one can find a
wide variety of designs and plans, some for free and some for
very inexpensive prices. If one so chooses, there are even plans
on the internet for making a humidor out of Tupperware®. One
can make any humidor from the traveling humidor to the glass top
humidor to the cabinet humidor. The biggest question one must ask
is how much time and effort does one want to invest in the
The major materials for starting ones own project include:
-Cherry or rosewood (for external sides of the humidor)
-Spanish cedar (for the interior finish)
-Hinges (for the top)
-Hygrometer (mounted externally for monitoring)
-Humidifier (for maintaining humidity levels)
-Propylene glycol and distilled water (to maintain humidity
-Weather stripping material (to maintain a tight seal)
The basic process for making a humidor from wood with the
hygrometer and the mechanical humidifier is as follow:
-Cut the cherry wood to make a bottom, the four sides and the
-Cut the Spanish cedar to fit inside the cherry and to be used as
the internal lining
-Drill a hole in the front wall of the humidor to receive the
-Place weather-stripping around the hole where the hygrometer
will be inserted and mount the hygrometer
-Attach the walls and the bottom of the humidor according to the
design. Usually, with smaller cases, simple wood glue can be used
with small brad nail for support
-Insert the humidifier according to the instructions for the
specific humidifier purchased
-Mount the lid hinges to the lid and then mount this to the back
wall of the humidor
-Attach weather-stripping along the lip of the humidor where the
lid will sit
-Turn the humidor on and allow it to run for at least 24 hours to
test the operation and to ensure that the humidifier maintains an
approximate 70% humidity level
-After checking, place your cigars in the humidor and enjoy
There are many variations of humidors, affected by taste,
requirements and funds available. However, the above plan
describes simple steps for building an effective humidor.
