The 50 DIY kit was a lot of fun to put together, It was not difficult to assemble, required very little trimming to fit my can. It’s been a conversation piece everywhere I’ve taken it, and the envy of my buddies??? The only thing I would say negative about the kit would be the floor piece was much thinner than the wall pieces. I had assumed that they would all be the same thickness, but regardless it’s still badass!
I’d defiantly recommend to anyone who likes diy projects, and to save some money.
Thanks again Mr. Fisher I look forward to next time,

I bought my 2nd DIY 50 this time as a birthday gift for my cousin. It arrived as before well packaged, Great quality kit. It took very little trimming to fit my ammo can, but the finished product was well worth it. it holds humidity very well with Boveda 69% humidity packs. My cousin loves his Ammodor I built him from this kit. Ammodors are great when your on the go, camping, on the beach of over in the sandbox.
Thanks again Mr Fisher for a Badass American made product.

I had a great time putting this together! I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who likes to do do things themselves. It also inspired me to make my own removable insert. The folks at Ammodor.com were very quick to answer my pre-sales questions and shipment was also very quick! Kit went together very easy thanks to the excellent assembly instructions.

Bought the 50 DIY ultimate kit to install in a new Cabela’s 50 cal. can – no trimming was necessary. Following the handy YouTube instructions, the cedar glued up and fit fine without a problem. Masking off both sides of each glue joint makes for a cleaner job and more visually appealing final product – it’s worth the extra effort. After seasoning the cedar by lightly wiping down with a damp rag, then Boveda packs, and calibrating the hydrometer, I was in business within 48 hrs. With the double Boveda wooden holder & 2 – 69% humidity packs, the humidor quickly settled in and is holding steady around 69-70% while holding close to 50 cigars.
If you want a tough, no nonsense, just get it done humidor, just buy one of the kits or a ready made can – you won’t regret it!

I picked this kit up a little while back. It was a great quick project. The end result is awesome, due to the high quality of the parts that come in the kit.
From start to finish the ordering processes was straight forward and having been in contact with these guys the customer service is outstanding!
The 50 cal can is a great size.
I will be ordering more of these in the future as gifts to family members.
I can’t say enough good things about these humidors! I highly recommend these.
Thank you for a great product and a really neat project!

All the spanish cedar planks fit perfect!
I added a plank for the top and a hygrometer to top it off!
If you want a very unique humidor and can handle a little sanding and glueing, you can do this!

My 2nd Ammodor kit for a 50 cal. can. With my first Ammodor full, I needed more room to store more cigars. It was a no brainer to get another Ammodor. If you want a tough, no nonsense humidor that just works and is a great conversation piece – look no further. The kit really isn’t hard to glue up, especially the 2nd time. Assuming you use a new or at least a used ammo can with a good intact rubber seal, you should not have humidity issues. Use a calibrated hydrometer and some Boveda packs and you should be good to go. With a well sealing can, your Boveda packs will last you many, many months before they need to be recharged or replaced. You can certainly spend more and/or get a fancier humidor, but you can’t buy better than what a Ammodor will do for you!

Instructions and videos were extremely helpful. All materials necessary to construct the cedar insert was provided, including the wood glue. Took maybe 10 minutes to put together, and then dried overnight.

Definitely a fun little project and everything looks good so far, I am currently seasoning it right now and can’t wait to use it and show it off to family and friends when I go to visit them and have a smoke!

3rd one now! Same as before excellent quality. fished this one like the previous ones with the lid trim, really sets off the box. I enjoyed building this as it is a gift for a good friend of mine that’s retiring soon. Means a lot to give something to a friend that you built. OORAH! Razzy Riz Thank you for your service, and your friendship. Enjoy your retirement, and you Ammordor buddy, may it be filled with many more years of good times, and fuckery that only you can bring lol. I’m gonna miss working with you, but I’ll visit you and we’ll have a drink and cigar when I do.
