This small box, measuring just 8 inches by 4 inches by 2 inches, makes a great desktop container for the pens in your daily rotation.
It began life as a Padron cigar box, but I have sanded and varnished the unfinished inside and lined the pen compartments with very high quality dark red baize material. Made of 100% wool, baize is the same material that covers good billiard tables, much like felt, but woven instead of pressed and with a softer texture, good for pens.
As you can see in the accompanying pictures, I am offering three options for the inside of the lid (no charge for any option):
- Original inside, which unfortunately includes the Surgeon General’s Warning imprinted into the wood.
- With vintage map and compass artwork – the picture shows this just laid in place, I will flatten it into place if you choose this option.
- With vintage postcard artwork – again, just laid in place in the picture, but flattened properly if you choose it.
The bottom of the box is covered with a soft pad to prevent scratching.
