Travel Box for Three Pens

Davidoff Millenium Blend closedThis Davidoff Millenium Blend Assortment box is just the right size to carry three pens in safety in your backpack, messenger bag, or briefcase.  Its sliding lid will stay closed under almost any circumstance, and inside, three pens will stay snuggled in their individual compartments, touching nothing but the flocked velour surfaces and the microsuede cover.

I’ve sanded, stained, and varnished the inside surfaces that were originally bare wood, then lined the compartment with soft tan felt.  Three compartments from one of Pendorapens wonderful pen trays were trimmed to fit exactly into the opening, and a cover of tan microsuede was added to keep the pens from contacting the inner surface of the sliding lid.

The Travel Box for Three Pens is priced at just $25 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your ZIP Code or location for a mailing cost quote.

I accept payment by PayPal or by request I will email an invoice which you can pay securely with a credit or debit card.

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

Storage & Display for Eight Pens: Cohiba Comador

Cohiba Comador closedThe Cohiba Comador box contained some top of the line Cohiba cigars and was designed to showcase them.  It is an unusual and unusually well-made box that will hold and present eight of your pens for viewing.

The box is unusual, covered completely in smooth black faux leather, and well-made with a nearly full width piano hinge instead of the more common press-on hinges found on many cigar boxes.  An added feature that I’ve not seen in any other box is that the inside compartment is hinged to the lid so that it is raised and tilted for viewing as the lid is opened.  What a great way to display your pens!

I’ve sanded and varnished the cedar tray, which was unfinished originally, and then created a wooden divider system lined with black felt to compliment the design of the box and at the same time keep your pens separated and protected.  The eight pen setup will accommodate pens up to 6 inches long.

The box measures 10 inches by 8 1/2 inches by 2 inches.

The Cohiba Comador Eight Pen Box is priced at $65 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com for a mailing cost quote.  Please be sure to include your ZIP Code or location.

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

Montecristo Estoque – Ten Pen Box

The Montecristo Estoque is the high end of their Espada line.  All the Espada boxes are covered with leather, but it is usually brown and rather like suede.  The Estoque is much more elegant, covered with black pebbled leather.  It is also of superior construction with chrome quadrant hinges.

Inside, I have used the existing divider system to create individual felt-lined compartments for ten pens.  The dividers were unfinished wood.  Sanding and some black paint changed their appearance dramatically to match the black box, then I lined each section with black felt carefully fitted to form the pen compartments.  The overall black color scheme yields a very attractive box and the individual pen compartments will protect your pens very well.

The Estoque box measures 10 1/2 inches by 7 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches.  As always, the bottom of the box is fitted with a 2mm foam pad to prevent any marring of your desk or table and also to prevent inadvertent sliding.

The pen compartments accommodate pens up to 6 1/8 inches long, and large diameter is no problem.  Note my MB 149 in the pictures.

The Montecristo Estoque Ten Pen Box is priced at $55 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com for a mailing cost quote.  Be sure to include your ZIP Code or location.

I accept payment via PayPal or if you prefer I can email an invoice which you can pay securely with a credit or debit card.

Renoir – Five Pen Box

Renoir box closedUnlike most of my pen boxes, this one began life as a box holding greeting cards with artwork by Renoir.  Beautifully reproduced on the lid is Luncheon of the Boating Party, completed by the artist in 1881.

The lid is held closed by an embedded magnet.

Inside I have added a tan velour flocked pen tray that holds five pens, each up to 6 3/4 inches long, in individual compartment.  Underneath, I’ve attached four soft foam “feet” to prevent scratching of your table or desk surface and to minimize undue sliding around.

Outside, the box measures 7 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches.

The Renoir Luncheon of the Boating Party five pen box is priced at $30 plus 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 mailing cost quote.

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

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

Two Single Pen Boxes

Liberty Singles closedThese Liberty Singles are nearly identical, with the only difference being the color of the lining.  Originally designed to hold one high-end cigar, I have repurposed them to hold one very nice fountain pen in secure comfort.

The painted top surface is original, but I have sanded, stained, and varnished the sides, ends, and bottom of the boxes, plus visible inside surfaces, all of which were originally bare wood.  Then I added felt linings, black in one and deep burgundy in the other.

These single pen boxes measure 7 inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide and tall.  The interior allows for a pen up to 6 1/2 inches long and 7/8 inch in diameter.  In the pictures you will see that my Montblanc 149 fits comfortably into the box with room to spare.

The Liberty Singles are priced at $20 each, plus shipping, or $18 each plus shipping for two.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a mailing cost quote.

I accept payment via PayPal.  I mail in the US by USPS Priority Mail and internationally by USPS International First Class Package.

Three Boxes for Smaller Pens

In previous posts here I have shown three different boxes suitable for Esterbrook and other smaller pens up to 5 1/8″ long.  You can see details by following these links:

Eiroa Four Pen Box

Davidoff Five Pen Box

Foundry Twelve Pen Box – this one is a double decker, so you’ll only see the top deck in the picture below.

Here’s a picture of the three together:

Three boxes for smaller pens

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.
