Andiroba Humidor

The design of the Andiroba Humidor came about in the late 1990s as I formulated humidor ideas uniquely different from the conventional box designs that were becoming prevalent in the marketplace at the time.

The humidor as shown was sculpted from a wood called Block Mottled Tangare, with the exterior made as two interlocking half shells that pivot/swing open to reveal the cabinet interior.

The cabinet interior features adjustable wood shelves for box storage, a louvered double wall backpanel for air circulation, a concealed central humidification system, and 7 individually sculpted drawers for storage of individual cigars.

Note the undulating shapes on each of the individual drawer faces. Although the drawer boxes were crafted from Spanish Cedar the drawer faces were made of Block Mottled Tangare to match the cabinet exterior.

The Andiroba Humidor is currently entered into a design competition called "Show Us Your Drawers" at Fine Woodworking Magazine.
