    Wedding Pen - WITH ENGRAVING - see my last entry

    This is not complete, I have to send it off to Pete for some engraving, but I wanted to show it, just in case it gets lost in the mailing. I have the hinges ordered, hope they are useable. I ordered some small barrel hinges. I have never tried them before. I also added little magnets to the order to used to keep the lid closed. They may not be needed if the barrel hinges hold the lid closed.

    This is the Triton pen hardware in a roller ball with Holly wood blanks.

    I didn't do any fancy joints on the box because I wanted to keep it simple. Took me several attempts to get a decent although not perfect finish on the box. I ended up with five coats of Deft Clear Wood finish, wet sanded to 12000 grit, them polished with a plastic polish. Thank you to those on the forum that helped me with the finish. I didn't get the best job with the felt, but it will have to do.
