I can't get good cigar boxes like Cohiba so I now use cutlery boxes which are relatively large but ok. also I've tried two cutlery trays, made of Rubber tree wood, butted together with one base (MDF)replaced with good quality plywood and I've made boxes from hardwood lengths with plywood tops and bottoms. I can stain them and paint or glue on prints and Photoshop pix. Great fun making them but I must get round to learning how to play! Soon.

Hi all, does anybody have a source for cigar boxes in or near Glasgow?  Cheers Kev.

Hi, I'm new to all this and thought I'd best introduce myself to all the fellow Brits on here. If you get five check out my page and give me some feedback on  my track. More advice etc the quicker I'll improve. Great site and drop me line.
