Custom Cigar Humidor Design

Protecting a cigar collection requires a blend of science and art, passion and precision.   Custom made wood cigar humidors by CustomMade artisans will preserve your collection in an ideal environment and showcase your tastes in both cigars and furniture.   Before you settle on a custom cigar humidor design, consider the following points.

Spanish cedar is the preferred wood for humidor interiors.  Its wonderful aroma helps flavor the cigars and keeps away tobacco worms.  This wood’s ability to hold moisture also helps create a stable environment inside the humidor.  For the exterior wood, you have many options.  This classic desktop maple and kingwood humidor by Delorme Humidors features a Spanish cedar tray inside and maple sides and a kingwood top on the outside.  (You can see a Delorme humidor under construction here).

Cigar connoisseur and writer Gary Manelski recommends you store your cigars at a room temperature of 70° F and at a humidity level between 68-72 percent.  Maintaining those levels inside your humidor can be challenging, and unfortunately, humidity is a difficult condition to measure accurately.  Different devices rely on measuring other environmental conditions to determine the amount of moisture in the air.  There are also different humidifying systems for humidors.  Find out what kind of hygrometer and humidifying system your CustomMade builder can include in a custom cigar humidor.  Conrad Zahn of Zahn’s Woodworking will mount any style of gauge the customer requests inside his humidors, such as this lovely Spanish cedar small humidor with a mahogany veneer exterior.

Can your cigar collection fit in a small box on top of a dresser, or do you need a stand-alone cabinet?  You need to consider not only the quantity of cigars you wish to store in your custom humidor but also the sizes of the cigars themselves.  Cigar sizes are measured by length and ring size and are referred to by traditional names.  This exquisite Baroque-style custom made humidor by JR-Quality, LLC, was designed to hold 100-150 “Churchill size” cigars.  Don’t forget your cutter and lighter.  This humidor has a special drawer built just for those utilities.

Remember that all humidors need to be cured before you can store cigars in them.   Ask your CustomMade artisan if they pre-cure their custom humidors.   The artisans of Desuenos Woodworks will pre-cure your custom humidor, like this sapele, ebony, makore, and Spanish cedar custom humidor no. 3, though you will need to make some final adjustments on your own.
