Sean, many cigar stores sell the empty cedar boxes and if you are lucky you can get one with an internal wall which you can shave off pieces to fill holes and keep the box intact. You can buy a box for the sole purpose for cutting up. Empty cigar boxes make great storage boxes for strings or just about anything else. Most cigar stores sell them for a dollar or two. If you live near Route 9 near Framingham there is, as I recall, a store that sells cigars and other tobacco products. I suspect there are a boat load of other stores as well.
Back to the original topic. One can get fairly inexpensive but good tuners from Taiwan via the bay which I have found work much better than the cheap variety with the hook thing (half bracket) that holds the worm. That said, if this guitar has remain almost unplayed for many years it might be a good idea to pull off the tuners, clean and lube them and check to see if the rollers fit through the holes without binding. The holes may need a light sanding and/or a little beeswax. Like most things, sitting around for decades is not all that good for something made to be moved.
be true to the one you love but have many flings with different guitars
