sound right?


Actually, I get about a quarter inch to a side.

And the top and bottom pieces are about an 8th of an inch, each.

Ok, I used kurtyboy's image to scale the sides.

Kurtyboy, is your box the same 4.5" wide x 6" long x 3.5" tall?

Seems to be closer to 3 3/4" tall but that's pretty close.

Cool, Thanks.

What does the wood seem to be? a search returns that most cigar boxes are made from either cedar or balsa, certainly not cedar, do they appear to be balsa? (those with real ones)

No it's a much harder wood than balsa.

Here's one by someone who obviously doesn't know there are Firefly fanatics who'd want it unmolested.

I don't know, maybe it's salvageable.

I think I have them stashed away somewhere.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

I just watched Serenity again last night. It calms me when the stresses of life close in on me. Jewel stated she whishes all her fans would stop sending her strawberries. She doesn't like them. As for the box on the show. I like antiques and that is what that box remedied me of.
