Made this for my son’s district chief who is fixing to retire. The box is made of Alder and was cut out using my new CNC machine that I just got. I know a CNC is over kill for making a pen box, but I can set it up to cut out several boxes at one time, push the start button and work on something else while it cut the boxes out. Now, I just need to get some bits small enough to do the engraving, this one still needed to go the laser engraver.

Looks like a fine job on both the pen and box. I like the idea of the CNC because you can custom fit it to the pen!
