Anyone have a project idea for some old cigar boxes? Answered

I have several square wooden cigar boxes laying around in my room just waiting to be put to good use. Recently I've gotten interested in DIY electronic gadgets and I was hoping to be able learn more about electronics while at the same time making use of these boxes. 

The picture below shows basically what the bow looks like.  it's about 6 in. by 6 in. x 4 in. deep.  Plenty of space for components.

Any ideas for a fun (hopefully fairly inexpensive) project for me?

In that case, you have too many options to list, since just about any project can go into a box like that.

Vintage radio or cd player? Also look in the 'related' column on the right.
