Just when you think you’ve found somthing unique, another like it comes along. Such is the case with the Cain Limited Edition “glass” topped box.
These boxes are completely unfinished wood when I get them. I stain them with my favorite Minwax “Gunstock” stain and finish the interior with a color choice by the purchaser.
The remainder of this post describes the first box.
This is a first for me – a cigar box with a “glass” top, making it not only a storage case, but a display case as well. The Cain Limited Edition is finished it with my usual: MinWax “Gunstock” stain, followed by three coats of MinWay polyurethane varnish, each hand-rubbed with 0000 steel wool for a smooth, satin finish.
The interior wood is stained the same as the exterior, and the pens are presented on felt-lined supports, with suede cloth covering the bottom. As on all my boxes, the outside bottom is covered with a 2mm layer of foam for a non-skid, non-marring surface that will protect your desk or table top.
The box measures 10″ by 8 1/2″ by 1 3/4″.
This unusual box is priced at
$50 plus shipping. I have several just one available at this price. ALL SOLD – No More will be available. If you are interested, please email me with your location for a shipping quote.
