Building my own Cabinet Humidor

All Hands (Navy speak for "everyone")

I am going to undertake the building of my own cabinet humidor.

I am planning on having the front and two sides construced of glass. I was however plainning on building the rest out of wood(obviously)

Does anyone forsee any any problems with using Red Oak as the construction material? On the interior of the cabinet I was planning on lining what little area that is not glass (Top, Bottom, Back) with Spanish Cedar approx 1/2 to 3/4 thick.

Also, in terms of humidification, I have about 1 1/2 pounds of 70% beads that I bought a while ago. Would these be sufficient (depending of cubic volume of coures) to keep my humidity correct? I was thinking of adding a small CPU fan to keep air moving. Do I need much more then that, i.e. gettin' all fancy with some high tech humidifier?

And would anyone have any recomendations for placement? I was thinking of having a slotted false bottom a store them and the fan there.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome! Since I am in the planning stages, I can be as creative as I want, so throw the ideas out before I start building!
