Daily Tip: Use Hot Glue to hold Sound Hole Inserts in place on Cigar Box Guitars

Cigar Box Guitar Sound Hole GrommetWhen using grommets as sound hole inserts on cigar box guitars, a great way to hold them in place is to drill a hole of appropriate size and then use hot glue from the back to cement it in place.

Try to keep the hot glue from getting into the opening of the grommet, to keep it from being visible from the front of the guitar. If you do get a little messy, use a sharp razor to trim the excess away.
