Pictures from Customers

Pen lovers who purchase boxes from me to protect their precious pens and ink often send me pictures with their pens in the box I made for them.  Please contact me if you see a box here that interests you; I often can create another similar one.  I’ll try to note any boxes that are truly one-offs.



Where are my customers?

Click on the map to enlarge and see customer locations.  Many are repeat customers or have purchased more than one box.


Gurkha Viper, finished with MinWax “Gunstock” stain and hand-rubbed varnish, fitted with two levels holding five pens each.  Perfect protection for pens in regular rotation.

Gurkha Viper (see above) and Ninja, finished to match the Viper, for ink storage.

A good-looking pair for a desktop.






Davidoff Lancaster, a pocket-size cigar tin, fitted with velvet pen tray and a padded “tongue” to hold pens in place.  Pens, left to right: Waterman Patricia, Columbus Extra 130, Pelikan 320 (modern), Osmia Faber Castell 662.  This particular tin is difficult to find, but I have other pocket-size tins that can be finished in similar fashion.


Carrillo Edicion Limitada 2010 fitted with a tan felt interior.  This box has jewelry box style hinges and comes in a velvet envelope.  Very rare box.  Those are all handmade custom pens!  Brampton, Ontario, Canada.






Arturo Fuente Hemingway and Flor Fina – one for pens, one for ink.  And really, isn’t a box named “Hemingway” simply destined to hold pens?  Lakewood, OH, USA.






Arturo Fuente Presidente and Flor Fina – again, one for pens and the other for ink.  The tall  Iroshizuku  tsuki-yo bottle has plenty of room in the Flor Fina box.  In Ireland.




Arturo Fuente Rosado with a red interior shows off the pens quite nicely.  This one is in Madrid, Spain.












Saint Luis Rey Rothchilde fitted with a removable pen tray over an ink storage compartment (tall enough for Noodler’s bottles).  Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur No. I and No. II boxes for ink.  All of these are in Fort Worth, TX, USA.
