Smaller than expected with a slight flaw

I've got to confess that I bought the sketch box a bit spur of the moment (ok, totally spur of the moment) and didnt take the time to look at measurements etc properly. So my first surprise was its size, somehow I thought it would be bigger, and the second was that the divider for the tray is loose, not fixed. Still, I love the design and the feel and look of the wood. I had hoped, as with the writing box, for a bit of grain like in the pictures, but it's a more uniform darker colour. The hole to press out the tray was very frayed on the inside and gave me a splinter, so I had to sand that down to make it smooth (losing some of the varnish). Apart from that I'm very happy and hope for no warp (my writing box warped noticably)

Exactly what I wanted.

Good sturdy wood, well crafted and beautifully finished. Plenty of room for the basics and more, but light enough to use in my lap for an extended period.

Beautiful craftsmanship

All Galen Leather creations could be heirlooms, they are that well crafted. Exquisite little details, along with the sturdiness of wood, make this a timeless piece. Thanks for this wonderful addition to the other pieces I've acquired, and the exceptional customer service.
