The seasoning process is quite simple.

Once the active system is turned on, it should take approximately a week before cigars can be properly stored inside the cabinet.

A bowl or two of distilled water can also be added inside the cabinet in order to facilitate this process.

Slow and steady is key.

It is my pleasure gentlemen.

Needless to say, all your wonderful comments are also well appreciated on my part.

Surely Mr. Delorme feels the same way.

UPDATE:

Base Moulding 4

Crown Moulding 13

A coat of satin finish has been applied to both mouldings.

Crown Moulding 12

As you can see, the difference between the two steps. With and without the satin finish.

Boss, this is truly a work of art. Someone without a fondness for cigars such as ourselves would appreciate the craftsmanship of this unit based purely on your woodworking skills. Keep it up. I can't wait to see it finished and loaded with cigars.

You got enough sticks to fill this hog up?

Not my skills my fellow brother. Mr. Delorme is the craftsman.

Initially, the plans were to build a 24" armoire. Wink
