    CBG's

    Builders have been posting guitars they have built, so I thought while I am sitting here waiting for glue to dry I'd put up a few pictures of some I have made.

    This is actually a tenor uke and a little soprano. The tenor is my favorite of all my builds.

    Love the tenor uke. Beautiful job. One of these days I want to make a baritone uke.

    Cool! But where do you get the boxes to begin with?

    When I started making these I was able to get most of them off Ebay. A few years ago the good ones went for around $5 max. and shipping was cheap. Not so any more. The shipping alone costs more than I would pay for box and shipping. I also bought quite a few from our local fancy cigar store. He'd sell them 4 for $10 for the good bigger wooden ones. I still have about 15 - 20 real nice boxes nice boxes. I keep telling my wife they were a good investment.
