The Box Maker's Guitar Book


Mix and Match to Create Your Own Custom Design...

If you can build a box, you can build a guitar. From box making guru and best-selling author, Doug Stowe, The Box Maker’s Guitar Book breaks down the guitar into its easily made component parts so you can quickly understand how it all works.  Then, after guiding you on how to build a box, you’ll learn how to create sound holes, necks, frets, nuts, tail pieces, bridges, and all the pieces you need to hand-craft your musical masterpiece. The final projects in The Box Maker’s Guitar Book include more than just a flat-sided box — you can try your hand at a scissor-tail or K-body design, or even a complete ukulele. With minimal time and tools, you can have a sweet-sounding box guitar that you’ll proudly strum or happily give to that musically inclined family member or friend.
