New TARDIS Inspired Humidor Cabinet

Video at https://youtu.be/CYPS-iI5nYM

humidor2I am not a cigar smoker myself, but a client asked that I design and build him a cigar humidor based on the TARDIS.

This handmade TARDIS humidor design is not anything like a traditional style humidor. It is built to faithful TARDIS dimensions and finished off with 7 pull-out drawers (Cherry hardwood drawer fronts with high gloss lacquer finish and Kiln Dried Spanish Cedar with Kiln Dried Spanish Cedar adjustable dividers.)

The door seals tightly when locked with foam strips.

The back of this cabinet is painted in TARDIS blue but left otherwise plain. (No windows, door panels, or top sign treatment so it can sit flush against a wall.)

humidor4This humidor is FULLY LINED in Kiln Dried Spanish Cedar. Each drawer can house up to 30 cigars and every drawer has its own adjustable Spanish cedar divider. There is a built-in brass hygrometer to insure your humidity levels are maintained at the proper level.

Features:

Holds 150 large cigars or up to 280 smaller format cigars
Entire box is lined with premium kiln-dried Spanish cedar
Seven kiln-dried Spanish cedar pull-out drawers with dividers
Cherry hardwood drawer fronts with high gloss lacquer finish
Glass analog hygrometer with brass frame
Brass lock & key
Door swings a full 180°
Dimensions: 14″ wide x 13″ deep x 24″ tall

There is a lot of building in this cabinet. All the drawers, the full Spanish cedar lining. the high gloss wood finish inside, (which takes some time all by itself to dry and cure)

A New Season of Doctor Who is About to Start

And I can’t wait.

whoA new Doctor has regenerated, an imaginary hero that I believe in.

Yes,I am a Whovian, Some would (and do) call me a nerd.  Not ashamed of that title.

Heroes are important and heroes tell us something about ourselves.

History books tell us who we used to be.

Documentaries tell us who we are now,

Heroes tell us who we want to be.

A lot of our current heroes depress me greatly. Guns, death, spewing blood to drive home the point. So violent they are.

But with the Doctor, they didn’t give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things.  

They didn’t give him a tank, or a war ship, or a fighter jet or an automatic weapon, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help.

They didn’t give him a superpower like a heat ray, or invisibility, or incredible strength, they gave him an extra heart.

They gave him two hearts.  That’s an extraordinary thing.

There will never come a time when we don’t need a hero like the Doctor.

Like and share if you might agree.
