Default Pen box

Here is another good project for those small pieces of wood that are left after bigger projects. This pen box is a copy of one from a Doug Stowe book. The pen is a turned pen by some Long Island wood worker. I recieve the pen as a gift from Suffolk County for 25 years of service.

Default back side

Thanks Jim I intend to make a few of these in case an Odd Christmas presant is required. This one is just so I can get the feel of how the work progresses. I want to make strips of different woods then to make a top.

Thanks Bob, I think I will line the inside with felt. I will also will spend some more time sanding on the others I build. This one was just to get the feel and work out any kinks in my production process.

Default Felt added

Next time I will put the felt on be fore I assemble. I will have to be very careful to keep the glue off the felt.

John,

I'vr often thought flocking would be a monster although BJ makes it sound straightforward. I have no experience with it but would it make sense to finish the pieces, add the felt and then assemble? That way any glue from the flocking would be on top of the finish and (seemingly?) easier to remove? I'm just thinking out loud here and may be way off base.

That would work Jim , but the small end pieces have to be routed on the frame so I don't wreck the piece. I use Quick stick felt because it is so easy for me.
