A friend of ours, Harvey Christiansen, is a talented woodworker. So when I needed a new place to store my favorite pens and pencils I went to Harvey with an old cigar box that was about the size I was looking for and asked if he could make a pen and pencil box.
He made three! In two of the boxes, Harvey had the great idea to include felt inside. Nice! (See Happy Pens below)
He also put on a carved wooden star, some orange felt and a wood frame and then matched the same type of latch that was on the cigar box prototype. I didn't think to take a photo of the latch. Next time.
