Percy Phelps - I made my first CGB using a "tea" box I got from a craft store in Brisbane. I have to say it was pretty bad - even given it was my first attempt. I lived in the US for a while and scored a few cigar boxes so have all I need for the moment. It doesn't have to be a cigar box, but make sure the wood of any box you source or make is reasonably "hard" - the tea box was very soft wood which is what I think made it such a bad option.
I still have a heap of very good boxes. See earlier post.
Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone has any info on building faux cigar boxes (given that real ones are so hard to get and expensive in Oz).
hey folks, i'm uk based but will be in Oz for 3 weeks from the 15th. staying just south of perth. if there is anything going on there would love to play while i'm there. cheers
Still have quite a few left. Sent one lot to South Australia, postage came to $38. Prices range from $5 to $20. Just want to recover what I spent on them.
Send me an email Glenn to: email@example.com
and may be we can work something out.
I'm in Tassie.
