I don’t turn, so a friend is turning a few pens for me. They will be gifts. I’d like to make a case for each of them. Anybody ever make cases for a single pen? Would you be willing to share pictures? I’d like to make them with friction fit lids, if possible.
Thanks, guys.

Yes several. I do presentation boxes for pens I turn and knives I make. You will have a blast. You are limited only by your imagination. A great way to use up shorts, cut offs and left overs too. Google this and follow Patron’s link for a lot of ideas and you will numerous. Enjoy

Sorry Gene. I’m suffering from OFS today. I MEANT to finish with… “and you will find numerous ideas”. Even the commercially made boxes will maybe get your creative juices flowing.

Thanks a lot, guys!
Someday, I may learn how to navigate this huge site. :-)
Owlcroft’s blog (in the link David provided) was certainly helpful.
