Several Upcoming Pen Boxes

I have a substantial inventory of cigar boxes in my workshop – more than I can possibly repurpose into pen boxes in a short time.  So, I have picked out several boxes that I believe will be interesting and am posting them all here so that you can see what is coming soon.

Wright for you? A Seven Pen Celebration of the Architect

I like Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and recently returned from a stay at the Arizona Biltmore, one of his designs.  That inspired me to create a pen box celebrating his work.

Here it is, a seven pen box featuring one of his stained glass designs on the lid, a portrait of Wright inside the lid, and my own interpretation of his style reflected in the grey, red, green, and black lining.

The Wright Box will hold seven pens up to seven inches long, each in its own softly lined compartment.  The green compartments are lined with baize, that 100% wool cloth that usually covers billiard tables, while the black and red compartments are lined with suedecloth.  Both will protect your pens nicely.

The Wright Seven Pen Box is priced at $45 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote.  Be sure to include your location or ZIP code.

I ship by USPS Priority Mail inside the US and by International First Class Mail outside the US.

An Unusual Box – LFD Double Ligero

I now have three more LFD Double Ligero boxes available.  The information below describes one that I sold recently.  I can finish the three boxes in any stain and with your choice of lining colors.

————————–description of previously sold box follows————————-

This box must have held some really long cigars!  By any measure it is truly unusual.

This box measures nearly 11 inches wide, 10 1/2 inches front to back, and just 1 1/8″ tall.  Inside, there are ten compartments, each long enough for two Sheaffer Tuckaways or a large desk pen, so it could hold as many as 20 pens, depending on their length.

I have stained the wood with Minwax Red Mahogany and applied several coats of Minwax Satin Polyurethane varnish, hand-rubbed with 0000 steel wool after each coat for a deep, luminous finish.

The individual compartments are lined with the finest dark green baize – that’s the woven felt-like material used on billiard tables, made of 100% wool.

The pens in the pictures include a Montblanc 149, a Wahl-Eversharp Red Ripple desk pen, several Sheaffer Military Clip Balances, and two Tuckaway pen/pencil pairs.

The Double Ligero is priced at $50 plus shipping.  Please click here to email me for questions or a shipping cost quote.
