Humidor Cabinet

New life for an old glass panel.

SHOP OWNER: David Richardson
LOCATION: Apollo Beach, FL

    I had this beautiful piece of etched glass that came from the old front door of the house where I grew up. The house would be around 100-110 years old. Because I believe the old door was original, the glass must be as old. I had been trying to come up with an idea for something to build with it for some time when I got the idea to incorporate it into a cigar humidor.
Humidor Cabinet

    I made this humidor from red oak. It is 30 inches by 15 inches. I lined the drawers with cedar to allow the cigars to maintain the proper moisture and to give them a taste of cedar wood. Also included are two shelves to store smaller humidors.
    I do not have any shots of it under construction or of my shop. Basically, my shop is a rarely used parking lot. I live in an apartment and because of the noise my tools would make, I do most of my work out of the back of my truck using a 12-volt battery and a 1000-watt inverter - it works.
