"During the build I put blue tape on the areas I’ll be cutting and mask the rest of the box with some heavy weight paper to protect it. For finish I use Minwax fast drying Polyurethane on most of my cigar boxes. It goes well over everything.…"
Thanks Scott. I have built 15 or so 3 - 4 stringers, but always with a neck extended to the inside end of the box. Have considered adding a maple "extension" to this neck so that I can use that to reinforce the body/neck attachment to include the whole box. If you have a better/easier method, I would definitely use it! Alan Dillard, aka "Old Goat"
