Although fine cigars have never really gone out of style, recently they've been "rediscovered, making a nice, hand-rolled stogie more popular than ever. As a result, more and more people are learning that cigars must be stored in a moist, airtight environment to stay fresh (and even improve) over time. In short, fine cigars need a humidor.
Constructed of hardwood and lined with Spanish cedar, this elegant humidor project will keep cigars fresh and at the ready without the $150 to $500 price tag found on humidors in specialty shops.
The Humidor plan, No. 871, is $8.95 and includes complete step-by-step directions with photos, full-size templates and construction diagrams, plus a shopping list and cutting schedule. A mail-order source for a hardware kit and a Spanish cedar liner kit is also included.
