I have been up to my eyeballs in all kinds of stuff, so have been way out of the loop here.
My latest are some bass dulcimers, solid body, polyurethane strings and piezo pickups. Here's a little page I put up on them.
It's not exactly cigar box, but it is in the spirit. This is made from one piece of wood. Even the cover to the pickup compartment is from above the peghead. The ONLY glue is used for the neodymium magnets that hold the lid on the pickup compartment. Minimalism is my thang...
