The Santiago End Table Humidor is a clever design combining the very best in furniture craftsmanship with a touch of class that blends into virtually any decor. Featuring a rich walnut finish, this handsome end table takes "attention to detail" to another level with its embossed panels (an expensive manufacturing process) which are found on all 4 sides of the humidor. The front side of the Santiago features pull out drawers with routed edges and a front door with an embossed design. The remaining 3 sides of the Santiago also carry embossed panels. This means each of the 4 sides of the Santiago carry a "completely finished look" so that the unit can sit in the center of any room and look great from every angle. The 2 pull out drawers in the Santiago are set on metal slides for smooth feel and operation. Each drawer includes 3 adjustable cedar dividers. Your cigar collection stored in the top drawer can be viewed directly through the beveled glass top. In the rear section of the top drawer, a built-in silver frame digital hygrometer which displays temperature and relative humidity is also visible through the glass. Opening the swing door in lower section of humidor reveals a spacious area with a cedar shelf for additional storage. Also includes 6 humidifiers, silver hardware, lock and key sets for each section, a wiring port in the rear for electric and a fully lined Spanish cedar interior that stores up to 700 cigars. The Santiago End Table Cigar Humidor provides its owner with generous amount of cigar storage with the aesthetics of fine furniture that will embellish any room at an unbelievable price!

One caveat is that there is no easy way for air to get between the inside of the drawer and the rest of the humidor. If you don't want to use the drawer for tobacco products or humidifying materials, this is not an issue. Since I had planned to put my humidifying solution in the drawer, this presented a problem for me. I ended up taking out the drawer and putting some moistened humidifying crystals in two small shallow containers in the open space left there. At some point I may drill a few holes in the front of the drawer very carefully to allow air to move between there and the rest of the humidor, but for now just having that area open is working quite nicely. I don't think the supplied humidifying sponges would work that well, but since I did not try them I cannot comment.
After a while it became apparent that the humidity was not consistent, cigars that I have always had good luck with were shedding their wrappers. I have devised a way of correcting this and will update my review when I have completed my modifications. Bottom line is it is a beautiful piece of furniture, but needs about $20-100 in updates to make a great humidor. Stay tuned.
I have the humidor keeping a happy and consistent 69% RH. Solution was as follows:
1) Purchase a "Humi Care EH Plus" Humidifier and extra fan kit.
2) Google to get .062 thick .5 wide neoprene rubber strips with adhesive backing.
I ran the rubber strips around the perimieter of the face of the cabient. I just went over the top of the locking mechanism, as it won't work due to the thickness of the rubber anyway. I also used a small piece of the rubber to space out the latch mechanism, it wouldn't latch properly otherwise.
I set up the Humi Care EH on the bottom shelf. The thing I did that made a difference I believe is that I hooked up the aux fan kit to the DC out port, so it runs at all times, keeping the air circulated keeps the humidity more consistent. I have the fan pointed so it pushes air upward and toward the glass, hopefully creating a bit of a circular current.
UPDATE 3: The humicare bit the dust, so I have taken an industrial humidity controller, and an ultrasonic travel humidifier and fashioned my own solution.
you can't use the bottle with the humidifier, there is not enough room, but the unit itself holds a fair amount of water. I ordered a humidifier unit with a lower profile that may do the trick, more to come.
