View Full Version : Where can I get a cigar box?

Hi all I showed my dad a youtube video of mike showing a cigar box ukulele he made and my dad being a keen carver wants to try it. Where do you get cigar boxes from though? I'm in the uk and can't find any anywhere near big enough?

I looked they are 165mm x130mm x35mm isn't that to small?

Hello Rae

Not sure if this will be much help, but I found one by chance at a jumble sale. Maybe try some charity shops or house clearance type places, also those tat shops that masquerade as "antiques centres". I've seen a few in those kind of places. I think it's just luck, mostly.

(Apologies that this is not overly helpful...)

Best wishes

SHot in the dark here, but how about at a cigar shop?
