Sculpture Pen and Matching Box made with Ipe
A straight forward made pen with matching box.
They both are made from Ipe (Honduran Cherry) which is a beautiful, very hard wood (that finishes to an absolutely beautiful shine).
The box was routed with a core box bit for the pen with a jig I made and then routed on my router table, top and bottom of both sides with a beading bit for a decorative, high end look.
I used the 5mm barrel hinges for the box.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
