What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I consider my stuff playable folk art. I look for instruments in junk. Cans, hub caps and what not. Most of my wood is barn dried from the family farm here in West TN.
