That box is a Padron cigar box real good boxes!

I always put the lid on the bottom of the box I think it works better that way.

That's really cool. Do you use maple plywood for your boxes?

Nice work Old Lowe, I think I might have to put together another shopping list...

I sure like your metal work... the lone star tailpiece (ideal for a banjo, too) and the scroll sound holes cover. They accent the "aging on the box" nicely. Good job once again!
