Pen Boxes

Although most pen boxes are not turned items, they can add significant value to the gifting or sale of a pen or pen and pencil set. So, we've included some instructions on how to make pen boxes so that you can choose if you want to custom make this valuable item.

 

Making a Pen BoxMaking a Pen Box
By: Keith Larrett
In this photo tutorial, Keith shows us how he makes pen boxes for his turned pens.

His precision photography makes it easy to follow the process from beginning to end. He uses barrel hinges and does a great job of describing how to drill the holes and round over the edges to allow them to work.

So, even thought it may be more expensive to make your own pen boxes (time and material), doing it yourself often has its own rewards. And you can always use that very special piece of wood from your wood stash!!

It stores a pair of pens, then hands them to you.

Raising the lid lifts the pen and pencil right out of this handsome desktop box. It’s perfect for turned wooden pens and pencils—you could even make the box from the same kind of wood as the writing instruments.

Box measures aproximately 6" long, 2" deep, and 2" tall.
