Sorry about poor pics. Bad lighting.

This is my first completely homemade box and I'm really chuffed with how it turned out. Took a lot of time and effort but I know have a box that can fit all my pens and all my future purchases plus any other pen related stuff. It also hold paper up to A5.

Nice box. But I have to disagree with your claim that is will be big enough for all your future purchases. I thought the same thing with my first storage tote.

At least if I fill the box I have an excuse to build a cooler box

Very nice--I like the sturdy look of it. But yes, you may need to build another one...

I am very pleased for you, and the box turned out a treat, but I'm sad to hear that you think you only have about a week to live.

Boxes are just like fountain pens one is never enough.
That is an excellent first effort you have every right to be proud of your work.
Nice job.

Brilliant work.

When the box is full of pens you have a good reason to make another one. And while it is not full of pens you have plenty of reasons to buy more pens.
