What to make with small boxes?

Started this discussion. Last reply by SlowHound Sep 18, 2012. 6 Replies

I was given a large selection of cigar boxes- 40 or so... some will be great for guitars or amps, but i have a few that are smaller 5x5x2  and a couple smaller than that. Any ideas?Continue

amp box

"Hi Jo- I haven't even started on it yet. I think I'll transfer the guts out of an existing amp... I have too many projects on my mind and no time to build these days. "

"Wow!! I bought a World War II box that's 11 x 9 x 7 made out of probably the same stuff and similar. I bought a Tone Monster SD-MAH5 kit and am a bit scared to start on it. What did you end up doing with this, and how did it turn out?"

"I sold the one I made with that box. It wasn't even out the door and I regretted it. It's probably in the corner of some kids room getting ignored right now! lol Geez. That was a little weird! I better find another one of these boxes!"

No I wasn't but will have to check it out some time.  Maybe we need to team up for one of those open mics and terrorize his caffeine addled patrons with some boot stompin twang ;)

Hey Jamie! Not WI but just east of St. Paul (Maplewood) for me.  Close enough for a handshake I would imagine ;)  We pass through your home town from time to time on our way up to Turtle Lake WI where our family has a lake place.  

I look forward to seeing your build(s) and nice to know there are friends close to bounce ideas off of. Not much of a player myself yet but I'm have a lot of fun learning, building and and meeting like minded individuals like yourself.
