Tool Checklist

You should be able to find most of these tools around the house (or a friends house) and if you want/need to purchase some, they can be found at any hardware store. I had one customer build his entire guitar with ONLY a Leatherman Multi-tool…pretty cool.

Here are the basic tools you will need to build The Original Finish-it-Yourself Cigar Box Guitar.

  • Utility Knife
  • Small saw
  • Phillips head screwdrivers
  • Hammer
  • File
  • Sandpaper
  • Wood Glue or White Glue

…and some additional items if you have them, or can borrow them.

  • Drill and drill bits
  • Miter box and saw
  • Paint or Stain
  • Pliers or wire cutters
