Dramatic Black Six Pen Box

LFD Oscuro closedThe LFD Oscuro exterior is finished in matte black with gold logo, and that theme continued inside with a black velvety lining with gold logo inside the lid. To convert it to a pen box, I have blackened all other interior surfaces and fitted a six pen black velour flocked pen tray.  Dramatic…yes!

The six pens rest in individual full-length black velour compartments, each measuring 7 1/4 inches long.  The pens will touch nothing but the lining of their compartments for good protection. The bottom of the box is covered with a 2mm thick foam pad to inhibit sliding and protect your surfaces.  A gold-toned latch secures the cover shut.

The box measures 6 1/2 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches front to back and 1 1/2 inches thick.

The LFD Oscuro Six Pen Box is priced at $35 plus actual mailing cost. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com for a firm mailing cost quote.  Be sure to include your location or ZIP Code.

I take payment by PayPal or if you prefer to pay with a credit card, let me know and I will email an invoice that can be paid that way.

I mail by USPS Priority Mail in the US and by USPS International First Class Package outside the US.

Twelve Pen Tray

Twelve Pen tray with pensUnlike most of my products, this is an open display tray.  The tray holds twelve pens, each up to 6 1/2 inches long, in individual compartments.

After sanding and smoothing with 0000 steel wool, I stained and varnished all the wood pieces, bottom, sides insides, and dividers, with Minwax “Gunstock” stain and Minwax Satin Polyurethane varnish. Next, I lined the bottom, sides and dividers with hunter green 100% wool baize – this is the stuff that is used to cover billiard tables. That took some time, with 49 pieces of baize to cut to shape and affix to the wood surfaces!

The result is a tray that will hold your pens safely, never touching anything but the baize lining, yet allow you to display them on your desk or table.  The tray measures 11 1/2 inches by 7 inches.

The Twelve Pen Baize-lined Tray is priced at $45 plus actual mailing cost.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your location or ZIP Code for a firm mailing cost quote.

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

9 Pen Box – Davidoff Limited Art Edition 2014

Davidoff Limited Art Edition 2014 closedDavidoff has offered their Limited Art Editions each year for the past several years.  This is the 2014 version, featuring an abstract image intended to evoke a tobacco leaf.  The remainder of the box is finished in glossy white.

Inside, I have stained the unfinished wood surfaces and lined the box with burgundy microsuede cloth to coordinate with the artwork.  The bottom of the box is factory finished with a felt-like material.

There are nine individual saddle-style pen compartments, each lined with the same burgundy microsuede and trimmed in gloss white to carry out the color scheme of the exterior.  Each pen compartment holds your pens completely separated and only touching the microsuede cloth lining.  Each pen can be up to six inches long.

The box measures 9 1/2 inches by 7 inches by 1 3/4 inches.

Flor de las Antillas – Five Pen Box

Flor de las Antillas Robustos closedThe Flor de las Antillas boxes are always popular, perhaps because they combine a definite “cigar” style with sturdy wood construction and a nice latch.  This is one of the smaller models, the Robusto, which has been repurposed to hold five pens.

The Robusto measures 9 inches by 6 inches by 1 3/4 inches.  Inside, I’ve stained and varnished bare wood surfaces and fitted a handsome Hunter Green velour-flocked pen tray that will hold five pens in individual compartments, each pen up to 8 inches long. Underneath, I’ve affixed a 2mm thick foam pad to inhibit sliding and protect your surfaces.

The Flor de las Antillas Robusto Five Pen Box is priced at just $35 plus actual mailing cost. If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a mailing cost quote.

A Four Pen Box for Esterbrooks and Other Smaller Pens

Open with lid aside

Eiroa makes really nice boxes in a variety of sizes.  This one is about their smallest, measuring just 6″ by 4 3/4″ by 2 1/2″ deep on the outside.  It has an unusual lift-off lid.

Inside, it is just large enough for four pens measuring up to 5 1/8″ long – think Esterbrooks for sure, and a number of other pens that you may not have thought of as “small.”  See the picture below with pens in the box – one of them is a Sheaffer Triumph Sentinel, and it fits in nicely.

I have stained the inside of the box with a dark walnut stain to make it compatible with the dark colored exterior.  The inside of the lid, the bottom of the interior, and the four pen slots are all lined with burgundy microsuede cloth to cradle your pens.

The Eiroa Four Pen Box is priced at just $30 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your location or ZIP Code for a mailing cost quote.

The box measures just 5 5/8″ by 5″ by 2 1/4″ deep.  The lid has a magnetic closure.
