We’ve worked with many wooden footlockers, crates and chests over the years. None match the quality and craftsmanship of this vintage 1960’s wooden chest. Originally used by Czechoslovakian military for the safe storage of medical and first aid supplies in the field.
These chests are hand crafted of solid wood with reinforced steel plated corners to ensure it will last many generations. Other features include two heavy duty rear hinges, two front snap lock fasteners, front hasp for a lock. Painted in an authentic olive drab green with vivid original stencils and medical crosses on the lid and front.
Converted into a custom Ammodor cigar humidor using solid 1/4″ Spanish Cedar wall and lid lining and 1/4″ Spanish Cedar plywood flooring. It is 100% American made by hand and built-to-order by our master craftsman and US Army Veteran, Jerry and Ammodor’s owner Kevin at our workshop in Richmond, VA. The container itself is genuine European military surplus.
The exterior measure 31″ wide x 20″ deep x 17″ tall. Once completed, the interior measures 28.25″ wide x 17.25″ deep x 12.5″ tall and has about 6,100 cubic inches of interior space. Rated to hold around 2,750 cigars and boxes (measured using Corona size 5.5″ x 42 ring gauge with no trays). For optimal organization and to ensure adequate air circulation, we recommend storing approximately 900 cigars inside. Weighs about 45 lbs.
Includes two handcrafted, removable Spanish Cedar trays that each measure 13.5″ wide x 16.5″ deep x 3″ tall wit several dividers for both. Your choice of humidification device and hygrometer hardware (see drop-down options to the right). Add the optional Masterlock to ensure your cigar collection is safe and secure.
Thoroughly cleaned and sanitized prior to use with our proprietary sterilization process. Can be customized to fit any request. Contact us with any questions before ordering.
Please note: Ammodors are custom built and made to order. Depending on our current order load, it could take 2-4 weeks us to handcraft your humidor. Please allow additional time for delivery and in some cases, time for materials needed to arrive beforehand as well.
Ammodors ammo can humidors are built using surplus ammo cans that have been proudly used by our Armed Forces. Due to this fact, the outside of the can may have minor scratches, dings or light exterior rust. Exterior markings and stencils will vary. Frankly, we think that’s what makes Ammodors so cool! Ammodors are tough, combat tested and look bad ass! If you’re looking for a “pretty” little cigar humidor, look somewhere else.
Ammodors believes in giving back to the men and women that put their lives on the line to protect our Country and our freedom – both current generation as well as previous. We make frequent donations non-profit organizations such as Hope For The Warriors®, Humidors For Heroes™, USO and others.
