This is a pen/pencil/box set I made for my boss as a retirement gift. The pen/pencil are made of wenge and are American Slimeline style purchased from Woodcraft. The box I made from Cherry. You can see the trouble I had in routing the grooves. I held the pieces too long at the end without turning off the router and as a result there was burning at the end of the grooves that was very hard to remove…I didn’t get all of it.
I used mini barrel hinges to join the two box halves.
The “B” inlay is walnut and is the first letter of his last name…(or maybe it stands for the “B” in “Boss”).
When it was time to give him the set, he commented it would be hard to bring himself to actually use them… I think he meant that in a nice way. :)
