• Have you ever seen this la flor de Jose Suarez box? I have few random boxes laying around but this is my holy grail. I've only ever seen pictures, never gotten my hands on one.


  • i'm always looking for boxes, esp pretty ones around 8" x 10" x 2" (-: 


    what can you do 'em for?


    • Well, I've been doing more wood bending lately, so I'm looking to thin the herd of my boxes some.  Most of what I have would fall into the 8 x 10 x 2 catagory.  Some I have multiple examples of.  Of course, shipping is always the bggest factor.  Most I would ask is about what I paid for them - around $3-$5 each.  Let me know and I'll get some pics for you  I probably have up to 75 - 100 I'd be willing to part with.

      • any solid wood?

        • If you mean, as opposed to paper covered, yep, I have plenty.  Most "solid" wood boxes are thin plywood tops and bottoms with solid cedar sides,

          Some of my current inventory:

          5 Padron No.9 Series 1926 (6-1/4 x 11-1/4 x 1-3/4) chest style

          4 Padron Maduro 6000 (6-1/4 x 10-1/2 x 1-7/8) flat top

          3 Padilla Toro (6-3/4 x 9-3/4 x 2-1/4) flat top

          2 Leon Jimenes No.2 (7-1/2 x 10 x 1-3/4) chest style - very light weight, not ply, should have great resonance

          1 Davidoff Aniverario No.3 (6-7/8 x 10-3/8 x 2-1/4)

          and a partridge in a pear tree.


          Photos on request, though I'm working the next 5 days straight (big tournament at the casino I deal at) so it might take a few days to post 'em.  Pricing would be $4 each, but I'll discount a bit for quantity.  Shipping charges will be whatever the actual cost is, no build up.  I prefer to send via Priority Mail, but if you want UPS I can arrange that.  Shipping will be from Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33328

          Got lots of other singles as well as those that are wood boxes with paper trim on the edges and/or decorative labels.  Most are similar size - Maduro or Robusto.  LMK if any interest.

          I also have one Artesanos de Obelisco - the rare half-moon shaped box that I used to build "Moondawg", $25 firm:
