Andiroba Humidor

Welcome to my first WordPress blog post.

I’ll use this opportunity to introduce one of my more unusual custom furniture pieces: the Andiroba Humidor.

The design of this piece came about in the late 1990s as I contemplated humidor ideas that were inherently different from the conventional box designs then prevalent in the marketplace.

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.
