Here are some tobacco dugouts I made to try and sell at a local tobacco shop. They were really easy to make ,I used hickory and padauk. They have a sliding dovetail lid, and I used super glue to hold the metal inlays in. I found out it also works great as a gap filler with sawdust. I had to try something out to make this hobby start paying for itself. Thanks for looking.

I had one of those in college…didn’t have any tobacco in it though. Good luck on sales.

Great looking pieces.

So it’s basically a storage for loose tobacco? Curious how it sells?

Sorry , its 3” tall by 1 1/2” wide by 3/4” thick. Yes it sells as a storage box for loose tobacco and comes with a little 2” long pipe they call a bat but i havent recieved them from Amazon yet.

I have always drilled out the bats. The bigger hole will make them easier to blow out. Just be careful to leave a little material at the tip to hold the tobacco. I also made a few of these that didn’t come with bats. They were used for prerolled cigarettes.
