Build your own humidor

Filed Under: entertaining

humidityThe humidor is an elegant accessory for regular cigar smokers. The humidor is a box with constant humidity and temperature control designed to keep cigars at their best. They range in size from those that hold a few dozen to entire rooms. Cigar care is very important to connoisseurs, but humidors can be prohibitively expensive. These instructions on building your own humidor might be more up your alley.

Here's what you need:
  1. Container (the author uses a Rubbermaid which works well)
  2. Strong cutting knife
  3. Digital hydrometer/thermometer
  4. Humidification device
  5. Cigar boxes
  6. Distilled water
Follow the instructions as you put the pieces together to make your humidor. Next time you are celebrating and go to offer your guests a cigar they will be blown away by the quality and freshness you are maintaining at home.
