I have been building cigar box guitars with my father, Andrew, for about two years.
When I was in fourth grade, I watched a tutorial on how to build a cigar box guitar. It consists of an empty cigar box, a 3-foot-long piece of oak, maple or other type of wood, guitar strings, tuners and some other items.
Finding an empty cigar box isn't too hard. I just go to any cigar shop with my father and ask for an empty cigar box.
I recommend getting your lumber next. This can easily be found at The Home Depot or in a lumberyard. When you buy the wood for your guitar, look for a piece that's 3/4 inch deep by 11/2 inches wide. I generally pick up a small bolt for the string nut, an eye bolt for the bridge and some screws to be the string guides and to attach the neck to the box. I also get a hinge for making a tailpiece. I usually order the tuning pegs online.
The directions are a bit complicated for a beginner. To see a demonstration, visit YouTube and search for cigar box guitars.
