I recently joined LumberJocks and so this is my first official posted project. It’s a bandsaw pen box made out of red oak. I found the pattern here on LumberJocks.
I’m using this to store one of my hand turned wooden pens. I’ve been pen turning for years, but branching out to other projects. The box could easily be used to store other things like jewelry or a pocket knife.
The handle is a piece of walnut, I cut in the shape of a triangle and glued on. I finished the box with a dark Danish oil—2 coats.
The only thing I wish I would have done differently was start the inside cut by following the direction of the grain. Then the cut seam would have been much less visible.
