Beautiful job Corey. I just wish I owned a pen nice enough to reside in such a box.

What a magnificent job Corey, I think that you SHOULD give up you're day job and concentrate on making up-market gift-ware for people with impeccable taste.
In the hope that some time in the future I will have a go at making pens and cases to suit, I went mad this morning and spent more than I intend to tell my wife (I only put some of it on VISA and the rest in cash!). I'm starting a new thread for it but look carefully at the shot, there is a pair of hinges that look pretty normal but are curved and have barbs, you may also note the two mini sawblades, one complete with attachment for the Dremel.

Looking good Corey. Now that you are finished with them do you prefer the finger notch in the front or a plain front?

Thanks Mike. Definitely a finger notch versus a plain front but I kind of like the one with all round overs best. A little more modern looking maybe.

Very nice and I like the notch. I have a couple of boxes on my desk that I put notches in.
