This is a vintage cigar box, perhaps 30 or more years old, made of Spanish Cedar, re-purposed to hold 25 pens.
The box was unfinished wood and showed many signs of use through the years. I cleaned the surface, smoothed it with 0000 steel wool, then applied Minwax “Gunstock” stain and Minwax polyurethane varnish inside and out. The old wood really soaked up the varnish, but after a couple of repeats it glows with a nice satin finish.
I created an “egg crate” array to hold the pens, with each slot lined with soft red felt. The inside and bottom of the box are lined with the same material so your pens never touch anything but the felt, and stand nib-up.
The box measures 4 1/2 inches square and 7 inches tall, so the 25 pens can be up to 6 1/2 inches long. The bottom of the box is fitted with a 2mm thick foam pad to prevent slipping or scratching.
NOTE: The box pictured here is sold, but I have another like it that I can fit out for you.
