"I make a trip to my local recycling depot and get a big box I can cut up to make my own shipping boxes.  It really doesn't take me long to make a fully custom fitted box at all if I just tape everything up rather than glue it."

Mailing boxes for CBG's

Since I have enough CBGs around, I send most of the ones I make to other people, not a lot, but some.  I have sent them as for as Italy, to Oklahoma and now have one that goes to southern Texas. I have looked for boxes the right size for mailing, but they want me to buy 25-50 of them at a time for more money than I want to spend.  I think it would be a great idea if you guys at CBN would offer mailing boxes for sale.  Something like a 38 x 6 x 10 would work great for me, and sell them one to…See More

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The thought that I can make music out of junk I have laying around really amazes me. I have also attended the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel festival in Clarksdale, MS the last few years and have seen many homemade guitars and Diddley Bows.

Kevin, can you take a shift as designated bus driver?  Hey, I made a nice little tinjo out of one of the tins from you.  Photos posted.  Maybe a video later.

Mornin' Kevin. Glad to be your CBN friend, thanks. Just happened to be on the site this AM. I got a couple of support posts on my back porch that might become D-bows come Spring.  Sorry, but I will have to tell my girl you were one one who inspired me - she won't go as far from us as Iowa to hunt you down for  a whoopin' though... ;)

Kevin, I like your take on the canjos with the aluminum beer bottles.  Hey, did you realize that I am in Harlan?  How is your playing going?
