OK, so a while back i bought a humidor off thompson and kicked myself everyday since getting it. It was a glass top one, i think 100+ sticks & had the hygro in the front. when i got it, the glass was loose and i figured that was bad for the seal, so i used some spills to wedge in there and try to close the gap.
anyway, it was bad and thompson sucked for service, so i got rid of it and have been using my x15 herf for temporary storage.
i have thought about using a x40 herf for long term storage, but im a little curious if there would be any issues.
I would be using the trays and probably a tube of beads or gel to keep it good & fresh.
i have thought about making a coolidor, but its not really my thing to make one as id rather have my cigars out individually, not boxed (as i never get them in boxes, yet. usually 10's or less) and i would like something a bit nicer looking.
I will be getting more and more as i go, because i really want to start keeping them for a while and aging them.
