  1. How much would you estimate the humidor weighs? You mentioned that you and the delivery driver moved it inside, how much of the packaging did you remove prior to taking it inside (if any)?
  2. Beautiful humidor and thanks for sharing the pictures! Impressive collection too. Curious, what were you using for storage prior to receiving your new humidor?
  3. Thanks. Looking forward to seeing them.
  4. That's a beautiful Humidor brother. I know you are going to enjoy it when it's delivered, be sure to post some pics when you get it stocked and sorted out.
  5. Hope it works out in the next couple of weeks for you. He emailed me last week and said that he would be starting back up on my cabinet and a few other large custom cabinets in the next week or so. I get the feeling he does not have a lot of the large cabinets that he's working on and they tend to get put on the back burner in the shop. I don't expect to receive my cabinet until summer or maybe fall.
  6. Did you get your humidor delivered or is Matt still working on it?
  7. Thanks brother, will be looking forward to seeing your humidor.
  8. Yep, that's the plan. Check out my previous post (page 2) in regards to my current cabinets capacity.
  9. I ordered the Cooled DDD Extra.
  10. That is a sharp looking humidor! Nice selection too, lot's of my favorites. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Good for you, especially before the holidays! Share some photos of the beauty.
  12. When you hear back from Mat share what he has to say in regards to the lead time for completion of your cabinet. Also, if possible share some photos of your cabinet when you finally receive it.
  13. Try and be patient with Mat if he does not respond to you in a timely manner. From my experience with him he tends to get really busy. It can take up to 10-14 days before you hear from him. He's a great guy to deal with, very thorough when answering questions. Whichever cabinet you decide to purchase you would be wise to purchase one that is two to three times what your current storage needs are now. Good Luck!
  14. Overall the Remington humidor has performed well, it was exactly what I was looking for at the time of purchase. It holds a seal like nobody's business with plenty of storage space and it is a beautiful piece of furniture. It will blend in with any décor and not stand out like a sore thumb. The climate control system works well, it took a little tweaking to get it calibrated to match my digital hygrometers. The Remington is definitely a major step above the Lemans. Mat (Avallo) does have a waiting line for his humidors. Unfortunately for me I have no choice but to upgrade, especially if I want to keep purchasing cigars. I'm really gonna hate to part ways with the Remington though!
  15. How many sets of fans do you have in your humidor (I see two sets)? Are all your fans set at the same time intervals per hour or do you try and stagger the on/off cycles?
