    Default My custom pen box

    Working on making a custom pen box. What you guys think. Going to line it with leather, I used my new laser engraver for the lid. Any tips and suggestions. I might do the next one a little deeper to fit a small ink well in... what. Plot leather you guys think I should use?

    This looks pretty cool. One thing I learned a while back while making some pen cases for myself, if the leather is going to touch the pens, don't use chrome tanned leather. It will discolor metal plated bits of your pens.

    Do you have any idea to create a storage box for Dip- "pens" ( NIBS ) Only a collectors edition? It could be a wooden or a hard-board with a liner.
    I am looking for some thing or an idea!!!
    This box looks nice but remember some people have lot of pens. At least it should accommodate more than 25 pens so you must have several different sizes!!
