Six Pens & a Compartment for “stuff” – LFD Oscuro

LFD Oscuro 6 pen with compartment openThe LFD Oscuro is a dramatic black box with gold logo that is hinged along a short edge so that it opens from one end. I’ve tried to remain faithful to its design while packing as much pen capacity into it as possible.

The LFD Oscuro box measures 6 3/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches.  I’ve added a 2mm thick black foam pad to the underside to minimize sliding and avoid scratching your desk or table surface.

The Six Pen & a Compartment LFD Oscuro is priced at just $40 plus actual mailing cost.

Two Six Pen Boxes

Corona with map artwork closed

The Ashton Corona boxes are well-made and have an attractive exterior. I have fitted out the inside of these two to make them into appealing places for six of your pens.

I started by sanding and varnishing the interior bare wood surfaces, then lined the boxes with royal felt and fitted a set of six individual cradles for the pens.  In each box, I added artwork to enhance the overall design.

One of the boxes features art related to Paris, the city of light, and it has black felt lining its interior and providing a soft, protected lining for the cradles. Artwork in the second box includes a vintage map. I selected a marbled brown felt for the lining of the box and cradles.

Either box will hold six pens, each up to 5 3/4 inches long. The pens are cradled in soft felt and will touch nothing but the lining.

The boxes measure 6 3/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 2 1/4 inches and I have fitted a 2mm thick foam pad to the undersides to minimize sliding and to avoid scratching your desk or table top.

The Ashton Six Pen Boxes are priced at just $30 plus actual mailing cost, each. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your ZIP Code or location so that I can provide a firm mailing cost quote.

I take payment by PayPal or if you prefer to use a card, I can email an invoice.

Eight Pen Box: LFD Oscuro

LFD Oscuro closedThe LFD Oscuro is a dramatic black box with gold logo that is hinged along a short edge so that it opens from one end. I’ve tried to remain faithful to its design while packing as much pen capacity into it as possible.

I chose a beige pen tray over black just because I wanted to echo the gold trim that appears both on the lid and inside, on its velvety inner lining. The tray is flocked in beige velour and will hold eight pens in individual compartments, with each pen being up to six inches in length. Each compartment is quite roomy and will handle my MB 149 very comfortably.

The LFD Oscuro box measures 6 3/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches.  I’ve added a 2mm thick black foam pad to the underside to minimize sliding and avoid scratching your desk or table surface.

The Eight Pen LFD Oscuro is priced at just $37.50 plus actual mailing cost.

Eight Pen “Dirty Rat” Box with Matching Ink Box

Dirty Rat closed with ink boxDrew Estates outdoes themselves in naming their cigars. This box contained the “Dirty Rat.” It has the striking Rampant Lion on the lid, accompanied by an off-center decorative stripe. Inside the lid there is a typical Liga Privada label detailing the production of the cigars once contained here, along with the Rampant Lion in gold.

I have sanded and varnished the exterior and interior wood surfaces of the box, then fitted a red flocked velour pen tray that holds eight pens, each up to 5 1/4 inches long, in individual compartments. I also added gold ribbon lid stops so that the lid remains upright when open.  On the bottom, I applied my usual 2mm thick foam pad to reduce sliding and marring of your desk or table surfaces.

The Dirty Rat measures 9 1/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches by 1 3/8 inches. The matching ink box has inside dimensions of 6 inches by 4 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Please use these dimensions to figure out how many of your ink bottles will fit.

I have two identical pairs of pen and ink boxes available.

The Dirty Rat Eight Pen box with matching Ink Box is priced at $55 plus actual mailing cost. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code so that I can provide an accurate mailing cost quote.

Jaime Garcia Eight Pen Box

Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition 2017 closed without label

The remaining box

I haven’t seen any of the Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition boxes for quite some time, and suddenly I have two ONE of them! These are large boxes with wooden dividers that once separated the cigars that were in them.

All of the interior surfaces and dividers were bare unfinished wood – except for the striking logo inside the lid – so I first sanded and smoothed the wood with 0000 steel wool, then stained with Minwax “Gunstock” stain and applied several coats of Minwax Satin Polyurethane varnish, hand-rubbed with 0000 steel wool between coats.

Blue felt that matches the color of the logo lines the pen compartments, and the bottom of the box is covered with 2mm thick foam to inhibit sliding and protect your desk or table surface.

The box measures 10 inches by 9 inches by 2 1/2 inches and holds eight pens, each up to 6 1/2 inches long.  The pen slots are 7/8 inches wide.

I have two ONE of these boxes. The one that was sold was finished as shown in the pictures, the remaining one is not finished and you can have a choice of lining color in it.  Please note that the sold box had a colorful paper label attached. The remaining, unfinished box does not have such a label, as I was able to remove it without any damage.

The Jaime Garcia Reserva Especial Limited Edition Eight Pen Box is priced at $85 plus actual mailing cost. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code so that I can provide an accurate mailing cost quote.

I accept payment by PayPal or I can email an invoice which you can pay with a card if you prefer.

Gleaming White Nine Pen Box

Davidoff Maximar closedThis is a Davidoff Maximar box that I’ve converted to hold fountain pens. The box is quite unusual, finished in gloss white on every surface, top, bottom, sides, inside and out. The logo on the box is in gold, so the entire look is quite elegant.

I’ve continued the original design by using pen cradles lined in soft gold cloth that appear to float within the box.

There are nine pen cradles, each lined in soft gold, and each supporting pens up to 6 1/4 inches long.

The box measures 8 1/2 inches by 6 3/4 inches by 1 1/8 inches.  It has spring-loaded hinges that hold the lid firmly in either open or closed positions.

Because the bottom of the box is so beautifully finished, I have elected to fit only small rubber “feet” to steady the box and prevent sliding. If you would prefer a foam pad that covers the entire bottom, I can make that change at no charge before mailing the box.

The Davidoff Maximar Nine Pen Box is priced at $65 plus actual mailing cost. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com for a mailing cost quote. Be sure to provide your ZIP Code or location.

I accept payment by PayPal or if you prefer to use a credit card, just let me know and I can email an invoice which you can pay with a card.

Golf Themed Desktop Box

Golf desktop box closedThis box is of quite heavy construction and features a cast metal traditional golf scene inset into the lid.  It would make a beautiful pen box for a golfer’s desk.

The box is finished in a red mahogany stain and has sturdy brass hinges.  I have added a 2mm thick foam pad to the bottom to prevent sliding and marring of your surfaces.

Inside, the bottom is lined in green felt, very much like a golf green, and I have added pen slots lined in soft green felt to cradle your pens.

There are six pen slots, each holding a pen up to 6 3/4 inches long.

The box measures 8 inches by 6 inches by 3 inches.

The Golf Themed Six Pen Desktop Box is priced at $50 plus actual mailing cost.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your ZIP Code or location so that I can provide an accurate mailing cost quote.
