Are you going to line this with Spanish cedar? Design wise I think it's great.

I'm using the free version of google sketch up for mac.
Here's my cut sheet for the 3/8 inch plywood. It does not include cuts for the trays. I'll be able to squeeze two humi's out of one sheet. The other will be Austin's, if he decides he likes it.

Layout looks good, but don't forget to figure in enough to cover the kerf of the blade you are using.

Not at first, the Cedar costs alot.
I'm gonna let it see a few sunny days to burn off the smells, then maybe line it later on

Great looking piece. Are you going to wrap the outside of the humi with a veneer of some sort?

It's modeled after a wine case I saw that was unfinished ply. However, I will probably poly mine just to avoid smudges from dirty fingers, bumps and the like.

Quite a bit, about 8 square feet just to line the walls.

Any progress made on this? It looks pretty sweet. Also, we do have a few guys here that build humidors as well, you would do well to bounce ideas off of them.

No progress yet, I've been busy with paying customers' projects, as well as school. Obviously I have to wait for some more free time.
As soon as I get some time though..... :D
