Thanks for the info on the elusive cigar box. Too bad. It seems like such a cool uke! I do want a cigar box at some point, but,aye this is a sign that it should in fact be handmade.
I think a peanut is probably in my near future, though... I have an Eleuke pineapple, second hand, but originally from you, and it's set up beautifully. The peanut is so cute.... I think it would be a perfect companion for the pineapple. They should write a comic strip about them! But, so, I'll let you know when I'm ready to pull the trigger.
