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).

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.

Cheers
