a pen display box:
The retail store where my pens are displayed had two stolen from the open stand and asked me to make something closed. Thinking how much I also enjoy making boxes, I decided to do something I hadn’t done in a while. I made a tray using curly maple with trays for pens, then made a box-top to go over it using Acrylic and Curly maple with mitered corners and sapelle and mahogany slipfeathers. The box top slips over the tray. The upper edges are beveled with the intent of focusing your eyes into the center.
The first photo is closest to the actual color. I dropped the camera on its head and need to take it in for repair.
I’ve only put the first coat of oil on. The finish will be several coats of Waterlox Original and a paste wax topcoat.
Hope y’all like it,
