SOLD: Another Large and Good-Looking Ink Box

CLE Ink Box closed

I found another of the honey colored boxes from Christian Luis Eiroa Cigars which make a very nice and attractive container for your ink bottles.

The exterior of the box retains its factory finish – a honey tan with black logos.  Inside, I have varnished the formerly raw wood surfaces for a smooth finish and added black felt lining on the sides and bottom so that bottles are not prone to sliding around when the box is moved.  On the bottom of the box I’ve added foam “feet” to protect your surfaces.

The box measures 8 1/4″ by 6″ by 3″ inside.  I suggest that you measure your ink bottles to be sure they will fit (tall Noodler’s bottles will not fit).  The exterior dimensions are 8 5/8″ by 6 1/2″ by 3 3/4″

The CLE Ink Box is priced at $20 plus shipping. SOLD 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 mail via USPS Priority Mail in the USA and via USPS International First Class Package outside the USA.  I accept payment via PayPal.

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

If you are interested in any of these boxes, please click here to email me and be sure to include your location so that I can provide a shipping cost quote.

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

Ashton VSG Wizard for pens and ink – SOLD

The Ashton VSG Wizard is one of the few boxes deep enough for those tall Noodler’s ink bottles.  It is relatively rare; this is only the second one I’ve found in nearly two years.  It measures 8″ by 7″ by 4 1/2″ deep and I can fit it for ink only or for a combination of pens and ink.  A combination box is especially handy on or near your desk, as it can keep your current rotation of pens plus your favorite inks ready for use, yet nicely stored.

SOLD: Arturo Fuente Exquisitos – Ink Storage

The Arturo Fuente Exquisitos is a very nicely-finished small box for storage of ink bottles.  It is just 2 1/2″ deep, so will not hold the taller bottles, but will hold many of the shorter brands.  For example:
– Private Reserve – 50ml – 6 bottles
– Pelikan Edelstein – 4 bottles (or three Edelstein and three 50ml Private Reserve)
– J. Herbin – 4 bottles
– Caran d’Ache – 4 bottles (or three Edelstein and two Caran d’Ache)
– Montblanc – 4 new style bottles or three older style or three new and one old

It measures 5 3/8″ x 4 7/8″ inside, so try your bottles to see what it will hold.

I will fit a 2mm thick foam pad on the bottom of the box to prevent marring of your desk or table top.

This nice box is priced at $15 plus shipping.   Please email me with your location for a shipping quote.

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

Signature House Blend – Massive Pen, Ink, or Pen & Ink Storage

This is the third Signature House Blend box that I’ve come across, and the first two were quite successful.

This box measures 9″ by 8″ by 4 1/2″ and is finished in a rich brown with a “brass” label on the front in on the inside of the lid. Continue reading
