Five Pen Box – Avo Uvezian Small Corona

Here’s a pretty box from Avo Uvezian, very well made with finger jointed corners and a good blonde finish on the exterior.  I’ve stained and varnished the interior and added a five pen tray to hold your pens.  Ideal for a desktop box to hold your daily rotation.

The box measures 7 3/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches by 1 3/4 inches deep.  It will hold five pens, each in an individual soft flocked compartment, up to 6 1/4 inches long.

As usual, I’ve covered the bottom of the box with a soft 2mm foam pad to prevent marring of surfaces.

The Avo Uvezian Small Corona Five Pen Box is priced at $35 plus actual mailing cost.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your ZIP Code or location for an accurate mailing cost quote.

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

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

Two Pen Carrying Case

Two Pen Box open with pensThis box is typical of those sold by Penn State Industries and other suppliers of materials to pen turners.  It is rosewood colored (actual wood unknown) and measures 6 3/4″ long by 2 1/8″ wide by 7/8″ thick with rounded ends, sides, and corners.  It is fitted with nice hidden hinges and would give outstanding protection as a carrying case for two pens.

Inside there are two routed pen slots, each 5 7/8″ long and just over 1/2″ diameter.  The interior is finished exactly the same as the exterior.

This type of box is sold with no lining in the pen slots.  I acquired this one in a lot of pen-related items but I do not like for my pens to rest directly on wood, so I lined the slots with soft burgundy felt for protection.

Because of the diameter of the slots, this carrying case will not handle large diameter pens, but it will accommodate the vast majority.  The pens pictured are two Sheaffer pens from the 1940s, a Lifetime Triumph and a Lifetime Vigilant (military clip) and as you can see, they fit nicely.

The Two Pen Carrying Case with added soft felt lining is priced at just $17.50 plus actual mailing cost.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a firm mailing cost quote.

I mail by Priority Mail in the USA and by International First Class Package outside the USA.  I accept payment by PayPal or, if you request it, I can email an invoice which you can pay with a credit card.

Montecristo Espada Ricasso – 5 Pen Box

Montecristo Espada Ricasso closedThe Montecristo Espada line of boxes is very popular.  Available in several different sizes, they all feature a distressed suede lid with a Spanish sword theme.  These are well made boxes with a magnetic lid closure.

To adapt these boxes to hold pens, I address the unfinished interior wood first by sanding, then smoothing with 0000 steel wool.  Following that, I stain the wood with Minwax “Gunstock” stain which matches the colors of the box very well, then varnish the stained surfaces with Minwax polyurethane varnish – hand rubbed.

I attach a 2mm thick foam pad to the bottom of the box so that it won’t shift easily nor mar your desk or table surfaces.

Once that is done, I fit a flocked velour pen tray into the box to hold your pens safely and securely, not touching anything other than the tray.

The “Ricasso” is the smallest size in the Espada line.  It will hold five pens, each up to 8 inches long.  The box measures 9 1/2 inches x 6 1/4 inches x 1 1/2 inches.

This particular box is fitted with a beige pen tray, but if you prefer another color, I have identical boxes available with red, green, burgundy, or black trays at this same price.

NOTE: No more of these boxes are available until after Christmas.

The Montecristo Espada Ricassa 5 Pen Box is priced at $35 plus mailing.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code so that I can provide a mailing cost quote.

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

SOLD: Dunhill “Signed Range” Six Pen Box

This Dunhill box is uncommonly well-made and finished, with two small rare earth magnets for secure lid closure.  I’ve left the strip on the lid with the signatures of the original Dunhill employees.

The box measures 7 1/4″ by 6 1/4″ and would sit well on your desk for your current rotation of pens.

The Dunhill Six Pen Box is priced at $35 plus shipping. SOLD If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location for a shipping cost quote.

Cigar Box Lamp

Lamp Edit

Click on this image to enlarge

This is just the thing for your man cave or billiard room, a lamp made from repurposed cigar boxes.  In this case, two Oliva boxes and a Java Maduro form the base and it is topped with a drum style black shade.

The base of the lamp is 7″ by 10″ and it stands 23″ tall to the top of the shade.

The socket is a 3-way, so you can choose to use a 3-way bulb or a standard bulb, whatever you prefer.  The cord is six feet long, ending in a standard polarized plug.

I can ship this lamp within the USA only.  It is bulky, but not very heavy, so shipping cost within the USA should not be too high.

An option for the buyer:  Since the lampshade is both bulky and fragile, I am quite willing to sell the lamp without a shade and let you provide your own shade.  I will reduce the price by $15 if you choose this option.

The Oliva/Java Cigar Box Lamp is priced at $75 plus shipping ($60 plus shipping without the shade).  If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote.  Be sure to include your location or ZIP code.
