CNN has recently profiled Alabama ENT surgeon Kirk Withrow about his hobby of building cigar-box guitars:
“There’s a certain element of liberation to it. You’re not bound by the rules of what you can get at the store,” said the 33-year-old married father of two. “You have the ability to change the things you don’t like and make them to your liking… you’re pretty much just limited by whatever you can think of.”
I can appreciate someone who takes the time to build his or her own instruments, and Dr. Withrow’s cigar-box guitars look pretty nice. Seems like a fun hobby, too!
