Red Humidor

This humidor is made with Red Elm salvaged during road expansion in the 1990’s from the Sacramento Valley and features a Spanish cedar lining and trays,  and laser cut steel grids backed with red lacquer panels.  It will hold up to 400 cigars.

The steel grid design is based on Chinese Chippendale patterns, but has been doubled up to create a moiré effect when a viewer walks past and parts of both grids in each pair is revealed and concealed by its partner.  The red panels behind them are finished with automotive lacquers inside and out to isolate the environment inside the humidor.

The 3/8”quartersawn Spanish cedar lining cedar was resawn and bookmatched and has a double locking seam in which the top edge of the lining fits into a dado in the lid frame.

All metal fasteners used are stainless steel where hidden and blackened and waxed brass where visible.

A Xikar Propylene Glycol gel humidifier and electronic hygrometer are installed.
