"Don’t worry about the sides being too thick, it’s the thickness of the top that makes all the difference? Just like the LPG pic above? 1/4” is fine, I have several vintage hollow body/arch tops built with 1/4” solid maple…"

Chris Wharton replied to Chris Wharton's discussion Joinery suggestions for hand-made boxes in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"Hi Rich. Good questions. I think the consensus from this discussion is that the thickness of the pieces I have is a bit too much. As it stands, I believe the sides are about 3/8" (far thicker than needed) in canarywood. The top and back are…"

"Hi Chris, I am a real armature at building so no advice from me but question.  I love the looks of dovetail & finger joints as I think this shows 'craftsmanship'  I live in Thailand so I can’t get cigar boxes and to…"

Reg Seward replied to Chris Wharton's discussion Joinery suggestions for hand-made boxes in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"That is more or less how I do mine, much like making a drawer box. You use rubber, I use masking tape. The sides can be planed to unequal heights, the ends different as a result, and the final result is quite easy on the eye.....  Braced in the…"
