I made this case with a cigar box and some foam and it works perfect. I put some stickers on and i love it.

Well it's only free assuming you have a cigar box lying around. No one in my family smokes cigaretts, much less smokes cigars. Looks pretty cool, though

I'm a cigar aficionado. What are nat Sherman cigars? Is that a really old cigar box?

Nice.

One thought, could you put some foam on the sides of the cigar box to ensure the top and bottom of iPad doesn't get scratched up? How tight is the fit from the cigar box front and back of inside on sides of iPad?

Have any extra cigar boxes like that? Would you send me one if I paypal you the shipping?

Oh ok it's like a macanudo. I should send you a cuban montecristo petit edmundo. It would blow your mind.

Well, I would appreciate it if someone could send me a cigar box for an iPad case like this. I would gladly pay for the shipping costs.

Let me look and see what I have. I'm in toronto so shipping would be a bit more, but having a Cuban cigar box would be a lot rarer than the alternatives.

Most Cigar shops will have plenty of boxes to either give away or if they do charge it is usually only a few bucks.

Definite points for creativity & ingenuity. However, the latch looks a little iffy--you might want to be careful that it doesn't pop open and spill your ipad out onto the concrete. :eek:

Cigar shops will give away boxes. My aunt uses them in art projects and gets them that way.

Yeah I have one left from a cabinet of 10 that I bought in Cuba 2 years ago. It's been aging in the humidor. I can't bring myself to smoke the last one until I replenish the stock.

my case may not be a perfect fit, but the wood is much nicer.

You're welcome. Did you order? I wonder how long the delay will be because of the volcano.

Not sure. I'm gonna call them tomorrow. I'm in Toronto and I see that they have a statement saying that they don't ship to Canada. I'm not sure why tho. I might just order to an American address and then have the package forwarded.
