Bristol-based duo Tom Drummond and Pat Hammett are bringing an age-old musical tradition up to date with beautiful, handmade cigar box guitars made in their Easton workshop. The history of the cigar box guitar stretches back to the Deep South of s America. The guitars were a product of hardship and poverty. When money was tight, people would make instruments out of what was to hand — an old cigar box, broom handle and a couple of wires became the building blocks of a new musical movement. A cigar box guitar has provided the backing for many a blues lament. Now Bristol-based craftsmen Tom Drummond and Pat Hammett have brought the tradition up to date with beautiful, handmade cigar box guitars.

The box can be designed with the lid to open up, down or to one side. The main label is pasted inside the lid. The box is painted on the outside, either with any of the rubber-base latex paints, or with paint from a spray can. The inside of the box is given one or two coats of the black latex paint. Other flat black paints may also be used. Be very sure to wash any brushes that are used with the latex paint very soon after use.
Learning how to identify cigar boxes by their codes may elicit a also find a second stamp indicating the date, the section the box was stored at.
The object sought to be attained by this invention is mainly to produce a cigar-box of wood and sheet metal as an improved article of manufacture that shall have all the desirable qualities and properties of the Wooden cigar-box and shall possess in addition thereto by reason of its structure several qualities and features of advantage over the cigar-box made wholly of wood.
Cigars of all grades, and particularly those of the finer grades, are found to suffer more or less loss or reduction in commercial value after a period ‘of exposure to such changes or influences of climate while packed in the well-known box of cedar-wood, as demanded by the trade. To this end and object I propose to construct a sheet-metal and cedar-wood box substantially after the manner herein described and shown. Figure 1 of the annexed drawings herein referred to is a view in perspective of a cigarbox embodying my invention and showing portions of the box broken away to disclose the structure more plainly.
This improved cigar-box is constructed with an exterior sheet-metal surface and an interior lining or facing of Spanish cedar in such manner that the box has a lining or facing of cedar-wood interposed between the metal surfaces and the contents. The wooden sides and ends a ab 12 are united to the metal sides and ends A A B B by turning over the topedge of the metal and bending it down closely on the inside of the box, so as to clamp and confine the wood immovably in place, and afterward the wooden facing g for the bottom is inserted and pressed down to place upon the metal bottom G, thus confining the sides and ends in perpendicular po sition, as represented in Fig.
A tight joint is obtained between the lid and the body of the box by forming a perpendicular flange or rim d on the edge of the lid and at right angles to its face, so as to fit down closely around the top edge of the box or into a rabbet R in the metal covering forced closely into a rabbet formed in the wooden body around its upper edge. After the lid is closed a strip of paper or some suitable material is to be pasted over the joint all around the box.
A cigar-box thus produced will have many qualities and advantages not possessed by the wooden cigar-box now used by the trade.
Tasting date: August Still quite youthful claret red colour. Lovely creamy nutty, cigar box nose with some dark mulberry fruit under cinnamon. Still lots.
Several months ago, I obtained a small wooden cigar box, gifted to and inscribed by Fidel Castro in , the year of the Revolution. Please scroll down to see detailed images. The box is something of a conundrum. It is not the quality of a diplomatic gift. The date of the inscription does not match that of the dedication they are a month apart.
And then there is the signature. The first thing that struck me when I saw the box, through photos, was that there was a relatively lengthy handwritten inscription by Castro. Logic suggested that a forger would probably have kept handwriting to a minimum, as each letter can prove guilt, so this was a good thing. Luckily, the handwriting matched the samples I had come across.

Photos By Tribune News Service. In the hands of Gipson Shoemaker III, the simple wooden box becomes a musical instrument worth hundreds of dollars and capable of producing a raw, gritty and authentic sound. Once a home construction artisan, specialising in faux finishing, painting murals and installing European plaster, the Minneapolis man now makes a living by creating three- and four-stringed guitars out of junk: cigar boxes, vintage hubcaps, ammo containers, lunchboxes, even old bed pans.
As owner of Lucky Devil Guitars gipsonshoemaker. Shoemaker, 48, said he spent much of his life trying to master the six-string guitar. Inspiration struck when he saw It Might Get Loud, a documentary about the electric guitar. At one point in the film, rock guitarist Jack White pounds some nails into a piece of scrap lumber, stretches a wire over a Coke bottle, installs an electric guitar pickup, plugs in an amplifier and makes it wail.
That was enough to persuade Shoemaker to try it himself. He built his first cigar box guitar in It took about three hours.
