Now Available: Cigar Humidor and Tabletop Liquor Cabinet Woodworking Plans

It’s been nearly a year in the making, but we are proud to announce the launch of two highly anticipated woodworking plans!

As you can see below, the cigar humidor box and tabletop liquor cabinet look great together as companion pieces, but each can also be the star of the show on its own.

49876-77-Room-Wide

Cigar Humidor Box

Our models were built of Alder wood, but you will be able to select the wood species you prefer to work with. The cigar humidor woodworking plan details the lining of the case and lid with ¼-inch thickness Spanish Cedar wood. You’ll love that the cigar humidor box is sized to hold 75 cigars! The hygrometer component on the outside of the box will indicate the optimum humidity to help keep your cigars fresh.

Tabletop Liquor Cabinet

We hope you’ll also enjoy the clever design of the Tabletop Liquor Cabinet, with its lockable cabinet and lazy susan turntable. Inside, you’ll be able to store 5-6 standard size liquor bottles or a few bottles with glasses and accessories – you decide!

The Bottom Line

I truly enjoyed designing these new woodworking plan products, and I am confident our Klockit customers are going to enjoy building them as well. Both the cigar humidor case and tabletop liquor cabinet make for very special gifts to family or friends.

Start yours today!

Top Products of October 2010

Our Quartz Clock Movements (10167, 10079 and 10164) were our biggest sellers last month.  The movements allow you to make a unique clock quickly.  The movements also include a free pair of hands and hardware.   Our Atomix 00562 Geneva Atomic clock (14383) was our top selling finished clock for October.  The wall clock features an atomic clock that sets itself.  This especially comes in handy around Daylight Saving Time which was on the 7th.  You don’t need to remember to set back your clocks or get on a chair to change the time when the clock sets itself automatically.  Plus since it’s atomic, the clock is accurate to 1 billionth of a second.  It receives its time signal from Fort Collins in Colorado at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  The clock also has an alarm with snooze button so there’s no excuse of getting up late (or too early) in the morning.

The “Time for Prayer” Wall Cross Clock Kit (34002) was our top seller in kits last month.  The original Klockit design came out in our Fall 2009 catalog.  The Clipper Storm Glass Kit (34013) is the second most popular clock kit.  It’s even currently on sale for $10 off.  And the Casio Pathfinder PAG40-3V Triple Sensor Watch and Sports Watch (87018) was our most popular watch for October.  The watch is great for hunters or fishermen with a digital compass, altimeter, barometer and thermometer in a green resin band and case.
