Cool Does anyone have experience with making a coolidor tray from a cigar box?

I picked up an empty Arturo Fuente box for $2 from a local JR.

My question is, is I'd rather not have a decorative box with a lid (especially for some cigars that I don't have as to not confuse my dumb-witted self).

But I'm thinking maybe I can use my heat gun and some tweezers to heat up the adhesive on the decorative paper to peel it off? Does anyone have experience with doing something like this, and cutting some nice slits in the bottom for aeration? Or even taking a cigar box and removing the lid?

Thanks!

You can, from my understanding, remove the lid and put the box in your cooler. If that is really what you are asking.

Use a drill to make holes for air flow

I ended up taking the lid off and I wanted to make my own tray, so I tried to get most of the artwork off
But it couldn't be done so now it looks like crap

But for $2 I'll buy another box and some smokes

You don't even need to remove the lid. The wood will absorb humidity and keeping the lid shut will actually protect the cigars from humidity changes from opening up your cooler. No need to remove the top, drill holes, etc. Look at the 'take a picture of your coolidor' thread, there are a lot of very knowledgeable brothers who have their coolers full of boxes, none of them altered in any way, and their cigars are perfectly maintained.

Plus, isn't it a shame to ruin a really pretty cigar box?
