From Cigar Box To Guitar

Make has instructions to turn a wooden cigar box into a guitar. There’s also a video going over the project:

So with some wood, tools, nylon string, eye bolts, and a cigar box, you can make a three-string guitar that actually plays. The problem is, I’m not convinced this thing plays very well.

However, this project is a great way to make a toy guitar for cheap. If a child is interested in music, you could give him one of these first before investing in a real guitar. Sometimes you have to see if the interest is really there …

Of course, this is just scratching the surface on cigar-box cigars. Some of them are pretty neat. For more information, click here.
