I’ve been making butt jointed pen boxes for some time now. Simple and straightforward, similar in construction to Andy’s “palm boxes, I regularly supply a craft gallery with them. My boxes are all around 200 mm long.
After Andy recently posted his beautiful Palm boxes, I got all fired up to make some more refined versions, some “art” boxes. I dropped off this batch at the craft gallery this past weekend. Obviously they have too be much more expensive than my “standard” versions and I wasn’t sure if they would sell. Well, I was there for about 2 hours, talking to some of the other woodworkers, and in that time, 2 boxes were sold already. It looks like I will have to add an “art range” to my standard line!
Thanks for the inspiration Andy; it is what makes LJ’s so great!
