I'm posting my weekend cigar box guitar build in (almost) live time on Instagram...

    It's the ANZAC long weekend here in Oz, and I thought I would tackle a quick and easy project that has always been in the back of my mind - building a simple cigar box guitar out of stuff I have lying around my house or in my spares bin.

    I am posting pics on Instagram a few minutes or hours after I complete each step. Bear in mind that I have no plans, and some crappy tools (and some slightly less crappy tools) at my disposal, so I am kind of winging it a bit.

    Feel free to follow along and either laugh at my failure, or raise a glass to any sort of success that I might come across...

    Instagram feed is: https://www.instagram.com/devans/ (Note: You don't need to have an Instagram account - you can open up the feed in a web browser and look at pics.)

    ...aaaaaand, it is completed. Thanks to everyone who followed along on the build steps (and mis-steps!)... It was a ton of fun, and a great family project! I've now posted the progress pics on my blog too...
