This is a Guitar shaped box to hold Guitar Pics. This one is made up of Walnut (lid), Mahogany (body) and Oak (bottom). I want to thank Steve Carmichael for his generosity in providing the drawing. He had made his and had a clock insert put into it. I decided to modify it a little and made it a bandsaw box. It measures about 6” x 4 1/2” x 2” high. I flocked the inside with Suede Tex and think it came out really nice. I applied 5 coats of wipe on Poly for the finish.

Really nice, Bill. I may have to steal that idea myself!

Rock and roll Bill. Nice work. Put a few strings on it and you can play it to.

Roger, I don’t play at all, but my oldest Son (47) has probably 25-30 guitars and plays everyday. I’ve made this one for him. My other Son (46) also plays a little, I will make one for him next.

I really like this project.

My wife used to say I spent too much time fiddling. Now she says I spend too much time on wood work.

If I were to attempt a beautiful box like that, I wonder what she would do?

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
