Three Boxes for Your Ink

IMAG1606People are always asking me about boxes to hold their ink bottles.  Seems that our bottles tend to become quite a clultter unless we find some way to contain them.  Here are three boxes that are available right now if you need a nice ink bottle box.

Click on the image to enlarge.

The first two are the (almost) familiar Hoyo de Monterrey boxes that many people have bought from me.

One – center in the picture –  is the usual “No. 1 Maduro” box.  Inside it measures 7 3/8″ wide by 4 3/8″ front to back by 3 3/8″ deep.  That means that it is not quite deep enough for those Noodler’s bottles.  SOLD – more later

The second – right in the picture – is a Hoyo de Monterrey “Epicure” which is a somewhat smaller version of the usual “Excalibur” boxes.  It is made in the same design, with finger-jointed corners, but the inside dimensions are 5 1/2″ wide by 4″ front to back by 3 1/4″ deep.  It is of current manufacture and is stained with my favorite Minwax “Gunstock” stain. SOLD

The third box – left in the picture – is from PDR Cigars and is deep enough for Noodler’s bottles.  It is well-made with finger-jointed corners and I’ve fitted nine Noodler’s bottles in it with room to spare.  It too is stained with Minwax “Gunstock” stain.  It’s inside measurements are 5 3/4″ wide by 6 1/8″ front to back by 4″ deep.  SOLD

All three boxes are padded on the bottom with 2mm thick foam to prevent unwanted movement or scratching of your desk or table surface.  All can be shipped immediately.

The boxes are priced as follows:

Hoyo de Monterrey No. 1 – $15 plus shipping SOLD, more in March, 2014

Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure – $12 plus shipping SOLD

PDR Cigars – $12 plus shipping   SOLD

I ship within the USA by Priority Mail and internationally by USPS International First Class Mail.


SOLD: Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur No. I – for ink storage

The Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur No. I has been my most popular box for storage of ink bottles.  Its interior measures 7 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ deep.  That’s deep enough for those tall Noodler’s bottles.  I stain these boxes with Minwax “Gunstock” and apply three coats of hand-rubbed varnish.  A pad on the inside keeps the bottles still and the bottom is padded for a non-skid/non-slip finish.

The price of this box is $18 plus shipping.

These boxes are regularly available, so I usually have one on hand or can get one quickly.  Please email me with your location for a shipping quote.  SOLD
