Made this little guy today. I used 5 cigar boxes fairly close is size, a 1×6 pine fence board and some scrap mdf. I vinyl cut and painted a Budweiser outline and tried to make it look like an old beer create. I don’t know if I succeed on that. I removed the decal and sanded strategically to age it.

Neat! I like the use of the cigar boxes. I still have a few floating around that my grand parents had. You did a good job on the crate as well.

Very clever concept. Curious though, are the cigar boxes made of real wood, or hard fiber board? And where is it purposed to be used? Love it.

Awesome, I already have cigar boxes filled with stuff for each of the cigar box pickup styles i make, and a wine box that’ll work.

Bradford, the boxes are all real wood and in some cases very well made with good hardware. Where to use it? That is up to you or anyone else who makes one.

Thanks for all the comments guys now I have to get back to the shop.
