Tough to narrow down to two. All are winners.

These are some of the neatest pen boxes I have ever seen! I'll have to sleep on it and decide tomorrow.

Roland, you get to vote for two of them, that might help with being so overwhelmed.

Fabulous craftsmanship! My one request, if a matching pen was made for these boxes, please post the pen with the box once this contest is over. I would love to see the completed product. Bravo to you all!

Beautiful work on all. My only comment a sharpie? With this group I would expect something more.

They are not allowed to show a pen that would identify them as the maker. A generic pen to show the function is allowed.
Life occasionally offers us the opportunity to make very very hard choices. I have had such offers.

Wow! How are you supposed to pick just 2 of these?! These are ALL an amazing showing of woodworking craft!

I'd like to vote for the same box twice or vote for more than 2 :)

VERY nicely done all.

They are all wonderful. My heart goes to one and then my eye goes to another.

Wasn't easy by any means. Decided to let both have a choice. Vision got the first pick....took Number _. Then my heart to the second pick....that was Number _!!!

I think they are all winners.

I managed to choose 2 but it wasn't easy. Great craftsmanship and imagination went into the design and construction of all.

I understand you can't put a real writing instrument into the boxes but a sharpie definitely does NOT deserve to be in there! ALL of these boxes deserve a high quality writing instrument in them!!! Just saying... :-)
