         We're in the same boat on this issue. I'm planning on building
something like a humidor but instead of keeping the humidty in, I'm putting
in silica gel cartridges which can be "recharged" by pouring the gel out
onto a cookie sheet and baking for a while. If you want something large,
you might consider looking on Ebay for a jewellers cabinet. One of my
neighbors uses one to dispay his wares at flea markets.
