VERY NICE. I love it.

Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

That is a beautiful presentation box … but after the pen goes into the shirt pocket, what happens to that finely carved box? Is there a secondary use for it??

Thanks everyone for your comments.
Grumpymike – it is a pen box meant to sit on a desk to keep the pen. I can’t think of a secondary use? Single cigar box? :-)

Hey thanks for that explanation, My wife and I will sleep better now. ... So the pen lives in this box and not in the shirt pocket … I get it now. (duh)
