no previous part Part 1 of Cigar Box Guitar series Part 2: Headstock roughed out »

Last night while the kids were sleeping, my wife was Christmas partying, and the glue on my try square was drying I got started on a new project. A cigar box guitar. I cut neck from some scrap red oak and planed it to dimensions. I then took a large dado out of it to let the lid close and notched the box to fit the neck. Finally I shaped the back of the neck with some rasps and card scrapers to make it easier on the hands. Next will be to get the head ready and add the machine heads.
