Frigador- Turn an old Refrigerator into a Humidor

Ever wanted a large humidor to store all of your nice cigars in, but didn't want to pay the big prices to have one? Why not build your own. This project utilizes an old refrigerator and a humidifier to do just that. We had this old refrigerator sitting around and decided that it would be a perfect size and would be really awesome to transform and restore this to a beautiful humidor. You could use probably any fridge or other old piece of furniture that is enclosed well or could be sealed to keep in the humidity an turn it into a new piece of furniture for the man cave or any room for that mater.

the items needed are fairly straight forward for a humidor but will vary in all forms depending on the detail you choose to go into when restoring chosen enclosure or how you choose to do it. Below is what was used in this project.

Old General Electric Refrigerator
A Humidifying Unit- to keep humidity levels up in the humidifier 
Old Picture Frame
Glass Fit for picture frame
Paint 
Stains
Cleaner - stainless and general
Piano Hinge

Custom Cedar shelves and a Tray were made to fit to hold cigars

can you tell me the name of your humidifier unit? Is it possible to make it hold an exact % of humidity?

Very nice, but that old fridge would bring about $2000. at a movie prop store in LA.
