    Default The best customiced box for fountain pen ever.

    This box is a transformation of a seamstress box made by Xeant, from the spaniard forum https://estilograficas.mforos.com/21...-de-costurero/

    All photographs are property of Xeant.



    The original box and a seamstress box that he bought at a street market in Spain and he did the restoration.



    In this photos it is not yet restored.











    They fit 96 pens in the trays. And Xeant enabled the central drawer with a handmade tray made by him to hold 35 more fountain pens.


    Restored.





    Now is ready for 132 pens.

    That is an inspiration. It's a much nicer sewing box than most, too. Most only have two levels of trays and are made in much less beautiful wood.

    I saw it over there. Pretty amazing!

    That is the best looking re-purposed pen case I've ever seen.

    That is soo beautiful, though far too dangerous in terms of number of pens that fit! Amazing how the top inserts are made with custom lengths to match the pens.
