Hi. This my first post so please be gentle. I have just taken my first faltering steps into the world of vintage fountain pens with the purchase of an old Sheaffer that I bought from Ebay.

I have been making boxes for a little while now, I mainly make them for my own pleasure and as physical therapy following an accident.
