Hi, I've seen several boxes with small sound holes that look like open brass rivets.  I don't know if I'm describing them right, but they are similar to the larger dobro screened holes, but smaller and without the screens.  Does anyone know what these are and where they can be found?

ok, I'm new on this forum..and I'm building one. Now about these grommets..I've considered
tarp grommets, but these don't have the screens in them. How important are the screens?
How many of these grommets/holes do I need on a 9.5 x 8 inch cigar box?

Thanks

One should do. GOOD LUCK!

Hello Barry -

You definitely don't need the screens, but they can add a distinctive decorative touch. I currently have 15mm (outside lip diameter) screened brass grommets, and I have larger ones on the way, including a 1" outside diameter and then a 1" inside diameter. I also have standard grommets in various sizes available, from 1/4" on up through 2" inside diameter. You can find most everything at the following link: http://www.cbgitty.com/cubecart/index.php?act=viewCat&catId=11, just click the link/picture for Large Grommets and Small Grommets on that page.

Good luck with your building!
