Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

The Delta Box will be a Crocker production instrument.  I'm creating all the templates, jigs, components and hardware so I can assemble many of these at a time.  The complete opposite of what I usually do.


The box


Using a Forstner bit in the drill press to make holes for the 2 broomsticks neck

I use a chunk of plank to square and steady the box


Making a support block for the end of the neck using the already cut holes as a guide for hole placement


Dry fit


Measuring and marking for the sound holes

She's beginning to take shape
