I read this article and although not cigar box related, though it was kinda nice and very interesting. I hope it's appropriate..

really like the idea of that inverted jelly cone cbg just that bit different to make it stand out from the rest brings a whole new meaning to get into that kitchen and rattle those pots and pans cheers

thanks julian fer da nice comment bout my 1886 build,you gots some nice builds here fer sure. i admire yer work greatly. those f-holes on yer first build are very distinguished and the rest of the build is really top notch.[i seem to like solid wood boxes best] but then the montecristo gets as good or better than yer first,then even more greatness with the caribes box. i would have to say 5 stars plus on all three builds.

WELCOME to the madness!!! A new revolution has started, it seems...I've posted photographs of MY contribution to the cause, the Lyra Mbira (pronounced LEER-A M-BEERA), wherein the kalimba meets analytical cubism...LOL!...CHEERS!

Ah well, next year mate!
Yep, those boxes are nice - they sound great too (used one a while ago for a 4 string), but I know what you mean about them being flimsy. Had the twin apart that many times the dovetails let go... ho hum, more work
Right, lots to pack so I best get going
Later
