Default First Pen Box

Greetings
I wanted a small light pen box to protect three pens while traveling. I designed the box body with 0.06 inch walls. This was my first project on my bench top mill. The materials are oak and walnut with two coats of BLO and two coats of wipe-on poly.
Thanks for looking.

The pen box looks great. I like the pens more.

I love the pen on the right. I have seen pens using those blanks sporadically on the site before and love them every time!

The clip is different from the art deco clips I have. Is it a kitless or an actual vintage manufactured pen?

Hi Lewis
Thanks.
The left and middle pens are my designs, The pen on the right is a 1934 Parker Vacumatic I found in my father's stash of old pens and pencils. It has my great uncle's name engraved on it. The nib is pretty beat up and there is damage on the cap and body. The cellulose acetate (I think that's the material) is see thru.

Mike

What a great find! I suspected it might be vintage. Very nice. Even cooler with the name engraved on it.
