Cigar box instruments have been around since the Civil War.
Now you can own a unique style of mandolin - a Smokin' Mandolin - made from genuine
cigar boxes. People are simply amazed that an instrument can be made from cigar boxes
and sound as good as they do. I now also make cigar box guitars and dulcitars (cross between
a dulcimer and guitar).
I am currently taking a break from instrument making to concentrate on my other business, The Torzyn Group, doing web programming and database work.
