Tate Chmielewski's Profile
A few years ago at a folk art festival I saw somebody with cigar box guitars and being somebody who has always played music and built anything that came to mind I just had to look into them more.
I learned these are based on old time primitive stringed instruments people would make out of anything they found. I set out on building some of these and loved making something that you can play music with!
After building some very basic ones I decided to make a new goal of making these instruments play and sound the best I could while still keeping a little bit of the old style.
I picked Ukuleles as a base because of the scale to cigar boxes, they're also so easy to just pick up and play! Who doesn't like the sound of a ukulele!
