I recently came into possession of some good supplies to make the perfect cigar box guitar including an old record, an antique yardstick, and a nice piece of flamed maple, sadly I didn't take pictures along the way, but I've got some good photos and a video demo.

Looks awesome and sounds sweet Samuel, nice job!

What K said, really nice job, and Welcome also

Nice build and great sound. Based on the yardstick I'd guess you are a fellow Michigander?

Yup, pulled the yardstick out of my grandmas attic years ago.

Small world, I'm in Michigan as well.  : )
