    I am taking a crack at building a small steamer trunk style humidor to replace my red and white igloo. I'm going to seal the inside with marine grade polyurethane and going to use spanish cedar trays and boxes to maintaine RH along with KL/Beads. I will send updates, wish me luck.

    Ok, so in the stead of a washer and dryer, I have a almost finished bar in the "laundry" room. The bar top is a deep brown, the stain dubbed "Jacobean". I was wondering if you fine gents would have any advice as to what I should paint the bottom (as in what the counter sits on). I was thinking a...

    Now that you have your starter grown and fed and ready to do its work it is time to make some bread. The first step is to build the Levain. Also called the Chef, this is the foundation of your sourdough bread. The yeast and bacteria have a chance to multiply and grow stronger. This will allow...

    For those of you planning on building your own humidor let this be a lesson. When building a humidor, one of the most important things to consider is wood movement. Wood is a powerful thing. If you don't allow for movement or you try to frame a top made from solid wood, you may encounter a...

    I just finished a Trinidad Robusto Extra. It was gifted to me by a generous BOTL. I am not sure how old it was but it was excellent. While I smoked it I read Dustin's amazing list of suggestions for beginners and several other recommendation threads. I decided to put together an order for a...

    Anti-tobacco legislation and large tax hikes are always right on the horizon. With that in mind I would really like to do some serious stocking up on pipe tobacco. However, I would like to stock up a lot of a handful of blends I love, instead of small amounts of many different tobaccos. I am...
