  1. Thanks Trapper, that's kind of what I was thinking. And wondering what would be a proper thickness of Spanish Cedar, or Mahogany, or whatever the lining will be made of. The foam insulation makes sense too. After that it doesn't really matter. I'm wanting to build a long rectangular chest style humidor that I can set on a floating shelf in my office. Cnote - I will check out the "wheesycab" lol. Thanks And yeah it's funny, we can get technical with these things on how to build and wood and all that, and then I think about stocking a bunch of stuff in coolers and tupperware and I just scratch my head. But a humidor is really a piece of art in my eyes. My wife doesn't agree.
  2. My neighbor is a carpenter and is willing to custom build a humidor for me at a reasonable price. Of course it needs to be built properly and neither of us are experts. Can anyone offer some guidance on where to find good solid information on how to build your own humidor? Thanks!
  3. Big fan of a good R&J wide, but I've never had a short. I wouldn't think there's a huge difference?
  4. I started cutting my cigars, when I planned to smoke that day or that week, to test the draw. If it's got a nice draw go for it. If it's got just an ok draw I dry box, and keep testing it. If it's too tight then back down for a while, 90 days as El Pres stated. Sometimes they just aren't ready.
  5. To me smoking a cigar is an event. I want to relax and enjoy every bit of it. Like many of us my life is way too busy.
  6. Wow! Someone on Facebook mentioned the black light but I had no idea what they meant. Very cool. THANKS
  7. Amazing to me. I love learning this stuff. I got the magnifying glass out and started studying! My wife walked in on me and just started cracking up.
  8. Siglo II purchased from FOH. I do see a difference! Luckily both of the fakes were given to me, I didn't pay anything for them!
  9. I see how bold the lettering is now that you point it out!
  10. My friends, I posted this picture on a Facebook forum and was a bit surprised on the responses. I don't smoke Cohibas that often. Even as an amateur I knew the Esplendido was fake. Sloppy printing on the label and no hologram. I thought the pyramid was real, mostly because the label looks legit. I'm not experienced enough to look at a cigar and judge the construction. But almost every response was .. Both are fake! Can anyone explain why the pyramid is fake?
  11. That's the question OB1. What's the ideal PMC? I assumed the green rectangle on the chart is ideal range but don't know.
  12. Thanks PigFish! That's exactly what I was wondering... the relationship between the two.
  13. Definitely not. My friend keeps 2 coolidors at 69% rh and 69 degrees, and I don't think he dry boxes at all. The temp works out for him because the cooler is kept in his basement in Ohio. I was doing the same with my humidors, but my florida home with no basement keeps temps at about 75-76 degrees. I found my cigars a little hard to smoke at times. Now keeping 1 humidor closer to 62% rh and the other 2 at 67% or so.
  14. Right ElPuro? LOL. Seriously, thanks for the welcome everyone! Only been into cigars a few years but am reaching the addictive stage! I am finding on FOH most seem to favor lower humidity. A friend had strongly suggested 69% but I have recently started dropping that down a bit. I also realize many have good results within a semi-wide range of temp and humidity so I don't want to overthink it either.
