I posted picks of the humidor I've been building in my workshop before and someone called it the Ark because of it's size (about 36 cubic feet). My wife loved the name so it's stuck. I've been working

Now go forth and fill thine ark, gathering every kind of marca and vitola known to mankind, two by two, both wild and tame, to keep their progeny from being wiped off the face of the earth.

Looking good. Very nice work on the book matching.

Didn't discuss with him but I have another, smaller built in humidor I did that I lined this way.  Had it for five or six years and love the impact of the cedar.  Both in the aroma it imparts as well as the stability it adds to the humidity levels in the cabinet.  If it gets to be too much, none of the cedar is fastened in, in any way, so it would be easy to reduce the the levels if necessary.  It's something I'll keep an eye on but I've always loved the aroma of Spanish Cedar and what it seems to impart to my cigars.  

Right now it has to live in the basement   When my 22 year old son moves out this year, his room becomes the start of the new man cave. The Ark will be the first resident of the cave along with the biggest big screen TV I can put in there . 

 

Hi.  Happy you included the option to remove.  I'm not saying it won't be absolutely amazing and perfect - I was just imparting some info....(I too love the aroma)...

Regarding "son in basement"...been there done that......it's a glorious move out day LOL......

Can't wait for you to enjoy.

Congratulations, that is work of art. Just out of curiosity how much do one of those humidification systems run?

Think it was around $400 for everything.  Controller/rh & temp gauge.  Three humidifiers.  Wiring harnesses designed for my cabinet size.  DC power converter.  Extra wicks for the humidifiers.

Found the invoice at work. $484. Forgot it also includes the 2 little fans mounted at the top of the cabinet. They're set by controller to cycle for one minute every 20 minutes, even if humidifiers don't need to run. Really happy with the quality of what he sent. Seems like it will be sufficient for the size of the cabinet so far, but would be extremely easy to just pop another humidifier unit in if necessary - they just run serially along the wiring.

What a beautiful piece, Ash! I really like the slightly understated, pure and classic form in unit with the great wood surfaces and the little fancy inlay, just so nice! Have to  :clap::2thumbs::clap:

Great craftmanship (I have to say with envy)! I wonder, you did the board resawing and bookmatching and the verneer cutting all by yourself? Must own a well equipped workshop. Are you a Pro?
