Woodworkers Welcome


Every woodworker should have a handmade instrument in their portfolio. We'll help you build your first... or your hundredth!

Around here, we're in love with the primitive instruments of the American Depression Era, especially cigar box guitars and the community of enthusiasts that embrace them.

Cigar box guitars are the perfect starting point for any level of builder. And because there are no rules to building them, cigar box guitars provide a lifetime of exploration of the craft.

Did we mention that they sound great, too?
