Will do. I think I will go with beads for the humidity medium. Hoping it will be less maintenance this winter. The heat always wreaks havoc on my humidity. Maybe the cooling effect will reduce the work. Don't tell the wife, but now I need to buy some more boxes.

So I got the new Humidor Yesterday. Have moved all the inventory in there that I can. Gave the shelves a quick wipe with a clean sponge just damp with distilled water. (to remove any dust). Filled the container that came with it with Heartfelt beads. I'm waiting on some new mesh bags as the tray they provide will only hold half a pound of beads. Temp got down to 66 in about an hour while empty. It's been running about 18 hours now, and temps seem stable, just working on the RH now. It seems to be holding 60% pretty consistent, and will leave the tray with sponge distilled water in there for a week. Should be consistent by then. There are currently 369 sticks in there now, and another 30 on the way. A box of Ashton Crystal Belicoso's "It's A Boy" to celebrate the birth of my son on October 28th, and a box of Avo Heritage Robusto's. It should hold right at the 400 it's rated at. Can't figure out how to attach photos though...

You should probably season well before you put cigars in there, if you want your sticks to be in good shape still. Read about seasoning.

I figured since I am sitting at somewhere between 64 to 68%, and the cigars are in that same range, I can acclimate the whole thing. If it stays in that range, shouldn't it be ok?

The problem is, is that it will swing until it stabilizes...give it time, at least a couple of days. You might be happy later. I mean you do not have to do it that away, just a suggestion. Try to help sir.

Figured out how to add photos! Thanks DonM!

 

Here is the full frontal:


 

 

Cool Blue Light:


 

Without the light:


 

Shelves (I added the cedar trays)


 

The drawers hold quite a bit:

  

 Bottom Shelf:

 

 

The only drawback I see is that it will not hold tall boxes like the one for the Four Kicks, hence the extra cedar tray, filled with Four Kicks.  So it would be equally unaccommodating of things like  the Tatuaje boxes.  Really any box stacked 5x4 will not fit.

To update the tall boxes comment, you could fit taller boxes in, you would just have to remove one of the shelves.

Thanks!  I do like it and think it is stabilizing quite well.  I do like the stuff that is in there.  Especially the Regius Black Label and the Four Kicks.  That box of Arturo Fuente Rosado Magnum R52 was a steal.  My Local B&M matches online prices, which is nice...Got the box of 25 for 137.00!

I had the tower on order but, got a call the one I wanted was out of stock and they wanted to send me a different one so I cancelled my order. Now I am back on the hunt for something that holds at least 2000 and doesn't look like caca.

Is "caca" a commonly used term in English? I know it is in my maiden language and I have to guess it has the same meaning for you.

It got me curious as to which ones did look like caca to you, any pics ?  

But seriously, a very large tower humidor is probably something I'll invest in soon, if life permits, so I'll take all reliable info on them and I don't know why but I'd be inclined to trust you fully when it comes to storing large amounts of cigars

Have you ever checked out Bob Staebell's stuff?  He is local to me here in Richardson, TX.

No CACA there!

So here we are at day two, and the humidor is sitting in the high 60's.  I removed the additional humidity media (Sponge in tupperware with distilled water, and the black ice jars) last night, and it has been solid all day.  I say high 60's because my instruments are clearly not as accurate as we would like.  Take a look at this:

Note the positioning of the hygrometers:

 

The two Xikar on the upper shelf:

 

The Hygroset II approximately 6 inches lower:

 

 Here is what is interesting, the two Xikars batteries ran down recently, so I replaced the batteries, and did a salt calibration at the same time, with both hygrometers in the same bag.  This illustrates that these are not super accurate devices, as well as how difficult accurately measuring relative humidity really is.  I am currently calibrating a Western Caliber IV using the Boveda calibration kit for the new humidor.

Great looking vinodor and a nice price. You couldn't roll-you-own vinodor (with those features) for that cheap.
