How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Diddlin' around looking for business card boxes for my wife - I had some old cigar boxes of my dad's laying around and put a divider in one, then started looking for more attractive boxes, found this site, and fell in love!

Artesanos de Obelisco - Moondawg

Posted on July 10, 2012 at 6:30pm 13 Comments

I finally found my “Holy Grail” of boxes – the half-moon shaped Artesanos de Obelisco.  Since I saw Kevin Brown’s build of one of these back in February, I knew I had to have one.  Here’s his:  I searched all my regular cigar stores for months, but everyone said they weren’t made any more, or they had never seen one.  Long story short, I finally found one in an out-of-the-way…

Building a Paddle Stick Guitar

Posted on October 4, 2011 at 11:00am 4 Comments

September 26, 2011

Now that I’ve built about 17 CBG’s I’ve decided to try my hand at a built-from scratch instrument. Inspired by Rand Moore’s work (http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/HMRB101/forum/topics/the-boat-paddle-box-the?commentId=2592684%3AComment%3A838455&xg_source=msg_com_gr_forum) and his excellent write-up,…

Hello Hal, Look up "Dick Mott", He's in H. town. I'm up the creek here in College Station (for some reason). Thanks for the invite. If your up in this neck of the woods send me a text at nine-7-nine,,,2one nine./ seventy eight hundred. I build small tube old style guitar amps "cook", never any clean tone what so ever. and CBGs, normally in the winter months. My next one will have a coin operated Kat food dispenser like Swamp Witch.

Hey, Hal   I've done a couple of boxes. I have a hard time getting pics to come up on my computer. As soon as I can get that solved I'll get some up. Great boxes!!  Rooster

Hi Hal,

I am doing a detailed write-up of my Flying V Dulcimer Build under my CBN discussion Group "Home Made Resonator Boxes 101, v.2.0". The discussion is titled "My Flying "V" Dulcimer Project". You might want to check it out. I'll be adding to it as the project progresses.

-Rand.

I get most of the wood I use from a neighbor with a woodmizer sawmill. The trees come from around this area. I did purchase a Sapele back and side set on ebay. But most of what I use is within a 5 mile radius from my place.

Hi H.H.

I was reading through the treads on CBN and saw that you were interested in building a "real" mountain dulcimer. I built one maybe a year and a half ago and documented it on CBN at this link: http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/HMRB101/forum/topics/rand-moore-my-mountain

It should give you a pretty good idea how to build one (except I did a flat guitar-life headstock instead of a slotted scroll headstock). You can also check out the builder groups on both www.everythingdulcimer.com and the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer Ning (http://mountaindulcimer.ning.com/).

Since then I build another rectangular mountain dulcimer. When I get better at steam bending wood, I'll try an hour glass body design. When I do, you'll likely hear about it on CBN.

-Rand.
