Building my 1st Cigar Box Bass with Cerrywood box and tiger stripe maple neck

Just introducing myself from across the pond. Built a 4-string cigar box guitar now tackling a bass. Having great fun in learning and being able to practise skills required. Didn't realise how much time it starts taking over your life. It's a great hobby and all you guys seem really helpful. Bass should be finished soon hopefully. Will post short video of sound once complete. Cheers guys.

Wow, can't wait to see the finished instrument.  Going to be a stunner.

Cheers. It's certainly a challenge but looking forward to completing it once back home. (Work Away). I'll post update's once complete with hopefully short clip so people can hear it's sound.
