This pair of pencil boxes are a commission for a credit union to replace coffee cups that were drafted for that purpose.
They are Walnut, one with a continuous texture and the other a soft contour.
Each is about 5” square x 4” tall.
Thanks for looking.

You’re going to need some very special pencils to keep up with those boxes

I’v seen many pencil boxes in my day none of which looked this good! I hope they keep a close eye on them or they may grow legs! Nice work!

Nice Andy. I make similar ones with marquetry. They are always popular as I am sure these will be.
They sure are pretty.

Andy, these are beautiful works of art. They are a box, but they are textured, sculpted, splined. rounded, and masterfully crafted. I would chain them down. I always enjoy seeing your work and the imagination you put into creating it. You are my hero. Keep boxing and keep posting.

They are so beautiful – wood looks great. Splines always make those boxes nicer.
