This is a ‘universal’ Cigar Box Guitar case I made. It’s big enough for a 2-string bass I have in the works. The sides are 3/4” oak ply. Top is Antonio & Cleopatra cigar box lids and sides laminated onto 1/4” plywood backer. There are two walnut ‘rub-strips’ across top to protect the 6 coats of varnish I applied over the cigar box lids, hope to keep ‘scuffing’ to a minimum for a while at least. Brass butterfly hinges and brass latches. Inside is foam lined, but not quite fully on the lid yet. Bottom and sides are covered with heavy commercial ‘speaker enclosure carpet’ Trying for kind of an ‘old, rustic, but not too worn look.
