I use this daily with the carrying strap. It can hold 5 pens, a few ink fillers, and a couple notebooks + odds and ends easily. Combined with the tote (it can fit if you want it to) it is my most used Galen product. Haven’t had any warping issues so far.
I have wanted one of these forever! It was well worth the wait! I love it!
I’m the third generation of professional writers and all I can think when I see my beautiful Writing Box is how my Grandmother would have so loved this as she wrote her best-selling novel. I feel closer to her every time I see it.
I purchased this as a high school graduation gift for my niece. She's not graduating until June of 2021, but I wanted to make sure I had plenty of time to get this box and fill it with all kinds of writer-y things. It's a truly beautiful piece. The wood is lovely, and the interior is beautifully lined. Anyone who is serious about their writing accessories needs this.
This box is great and there are actually some nice little welcomed improvements I've noticed of the design that are not in the listing pics. First are my brackets are recessed and don't allow the back to open too much which provides a nice balance and there is a new lining for the bottom. Love it.
I have purchased many times now and always look forward to my next purchase. Soon, I will have everything they sell. New items, Please!!
It's awesome!!! Thank you very much. Ever Thing fits in IT!!
I love this it’s a part of my day and a jem
Great product from Galen
