Well I made a ghetto cigar box uke, and by default I figured I should make an equally ghetto case. So I started messing around with some cardboard, and duct tape, and came up with this....Go figure it turned out to be extremely functional, and i think it fits the style of my little cigar box quite well.....I swiped some ugly fabric from my wifes sewing room to line it with ...there is a raised section on the bottom that cradles the neck, and the lid is padded to hold the uke in the case solidly...closure is just a big fat rubber band. Funny how something that starts out as a silly whim ends up bring something that works so well....and best of all its free! 299082990729906

Man...you should have figured a way to use some 550 paracord in your creation! That would've made it the ultimate survival case!!

By using duct tape for your case, you have used one of the two most important creations know to man for general "fix it" purposes. Now you need to get some vice grips to keep it shut. :)
