Smoked Salmon Gift Box 6-String

Up here in the northwest, (Washington State) they make nicely decorated gift boxes for smoked salmon. This top is from the Quinault Indian Nation for their smoked salmon. I made a larger cedar box to put under it using box joints, then made a maple neck.

Dan Vines replied to Mike Huber's discussion How to mount a 6 string acoustic neck to a cigar box in the group 6 string CBG's
"Monteray, I think it would be strong enough if you build a good structure for the neck to attach to inside the box. I know this is not your set up, but it might give you an idea. This is how I connected an acoustic style neck I made to fit on a box.…"
