That is one hell of a nice cabinet. Now comes the fun part, filling it up. I am sure that cabinet will bring you years of joy.:tu

That is one of the nicest cab-humi's I have seen. Great job!!! I wish I had that ability. The lighting is a classy touch.

Thank you all so much for the support!

I am letting it all air out for a while before I start seasoning it.
I have a Cigar Oasis that will go in the little tray mounted to the back wall at the top and a plexi tray in the bottom that will hold some heartfelt beads. I hope the humidity will stable nicely with everything.

I still have to put the gasket around the doors to seal it up real good but I already get the wooshing sound when I shut the doors. Even without the seal it seems to be pretty air tight.

VERY NICE!! :tu

Have you considered making a matching base? It would elevate the humi and proivde room for something like wine or accessories. It would be a great set.

Looks great! Good use of LEDs. A man after my own heart, I will be updating my humi project soon... like a couple days as I am finishing up with the LED portion!

This cabinet is a work of art. Congratulations ! I like the black paint finish with the gun metal knobs.

Question, what did you do to ensure a hermetic seal on those doors? Did you get a chance to test it yet?

Actually I did think about it a few times but then I cut the top glass in it. If I put a base on it..in order to get any kind of real room out of it I think it will be too high to really see in it. I am about 5/8 so the top of it sits just above my waist. Perfect to have good view in the top and great access to the top tray. I have put some serious thought in to making a small topper with an extended back on it. It would allow me to do something cool up top and add thermoelectric coolers to the back.

I have kinda really decide not to do anything else to it because I am going to put it up for sale.:D

Excellent job! looks great with that lighting ............So.......when can I get mine? :D
You can actually purchase it whenever you want. I am going to put it up for sale. I already have a ton of ideas for my next one but I need to sell this one first.:tu

Very nice work....

What do you figure it cost you in materials and how many hours were spent building it?
I am not really sure. I have saved all the receipts from it but have not added them up. I am kinda scared to add them but I am going to have to cause I am going to try and sell it.

As for the hours A LOT!
Not really sure how many but there were also a lot of hours put into planning and research. I spent a good bit of time while I was working on it sitting, smoking, and staring at it trying to come up with the next great idea and trying to figure out how I was going to do things.

I actually have some rubber molding that I am going to put on it this weekend. I have been leaving the doors cracked open and the fans running non stop instead of on the timer. I wanted to let it get good and aired out before I closed it up and started seasoning it. I dont want any funky construction odors in there damaging my collection!:)
