Use reclaimed materials to build your own unique cigar box guitar.
The course takes place in Brisbane over a long weekend and costs from $500. Anyone can participate and no prior woodworking experience is necessary.
All materials and equipment are provided. You will start with a cigar box of your choice and build a 3, 4 or 6 string guitar using recycled timber for the neck. You can choose from a range of guitar hardware or fashion parts from reclaimed household objects.
