If you don’t need furniture aesthetics or cooling, source some 160 bottle wine coolers (broken) and convert them. I was looking for a used armoire, but finally sourced some coolers. I got one for free, and the other highly discounted 08633ddf32bd93905a385338333b2cde.jpg263339ed8c03597786c75fcdb41be80b.jpg

There's no shortage of of wine cabinets in working and non-working condition on Craigslist.

I can build a walk-in for what I paid for my current Aristocrat. If you’re handy, have the tools and a little imagination, possibilities show themselves.

1.)  Do what @Brandon says and/or 2.) Beg @PigFish to build a solution for you.  The log below is from a CigarClimatology system.  An old one at that.  

Side note—I generally keep my humidor at 62% but recently because it’s been colder in my basement I turned it up to 64.  Cigars seemed a little dry to me at 62/62, better at 64/62.

I would go the same path. 

These guys have been around for a long time.  They are seldom mentioned, maybe for a reason.

Ouch.  Seeing those prices causes some major butthurt.

I design and build fully controlled precision humidors as a hobby and side line. You can find me if you search CigarClimatology on YouTube. There i demonstrate working vs. non working controlled humidors and basically share my engineering and how to design a functioning compressor cooled humidor.

My design concepts are rather simple, empirically tested and effective. The systems, as a whole are anything but. Watch some of my videos and learn about what it takes to make a really functioning controlled humidor that works when the ambient in your home (or other) makes life difficult to store cigars.

Cheers! -Piggy

I bought a curio cabinet off a local craigslist add, took it to my friend who works with wood, he gutted the inside, lined it in 1/2in Spanish cedar, built shelves out of the same, then he did some hand carving on the outside just because he got really into the project.I added an active HU system.IMG_2697.thumb.JPG.f752357097ceff21da96ed5aa51988bc.JPG I think its a masterpiece

Looks beautiful. Did you have to do anything extra to get a good deal on the doors/glass?

yea, I took the glass inserts out, added some strip insulation , same around the doors. That's it. the humidifier comes on and off as needed, holds it to 66=68% (this is my non cuban humidor)
