Comments about Art Alternatives Artist's Sketch Box with Palette:
Wish it was better quality manufacturing as the wood has grainy gaps. In manufacturing, a gap on the wood lid was filled was a lighter sanding putty and sticks out. Prefer a stained wood as well. My husband got it for me for Christmas, but I had picked it out on my wishlist. I find it to be average, but not exceptional.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A little bigger than I thought it would be as I was looking for a simple pencil box, but I was able to put the extra space to use for other drawing supplies as well. Should come in handy. Construction seems solid and box clasps shut securely without having to worry about it popping open and spilling all of my woodless pencils onto the ground and shattering them. The supplied palette holds things in place pretty well, but I cut a piece of foam to fit one of the compartments to hold pencils in place in transit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Reasonably priced, sturdy wood sketchbox
By Napa artist
from My studio
I now own two of these wood sketchboxes to store my tube watercolors (15 ml tubes). The box can also accommodate standard oil tube colors (37-40 ml tubes).
Great Value for the Price
Very nice quality for the price. I was looking for a nice wooden box to keep my graphite drawing supplies in and this was a great find. More then enough room to fit 20+ pencils, blending stumps multiple KUM sharpeners, erasers and small containers if graphite powder in. I even have a small ruler and brush for wiping eraser pieces and excess graphite away. And there is still more room spare. If you are new to drawing or have already a good collection of supplies this box fits the bill.
from Central Illinois
These are perfect for my purposes, which is as a game, with game pieces, cards and die stored in the box compartments and the gameboard stained and stamped into the top! PLUS a pallet on which I can create a different, additional gameboard so, BONUS! I don't have photos but since this is an ART site, you can use your imagination to create any sort of game box you want! This is much, MUCH higher quality than the "trinket box" I originally got for the purpose!
good box/no handle
from Adirondacks, NY
the box is well built and solid. i will be using it for both indoor and plain air pastel painting.i didn't realize it had no handle, but i'll still use it as i bring a larger bag with me anyway.
Great Little Box
from Blaine, WA
I use this to keep my opaque watercolor (Gouache) paint tubes in - so I don't have to go searching for them. It is also a great beginner box for anyone starting out to store your watercolor, Guoache, or oil tubes in. Comes also with an small oil palette. Great value.

Art Alternatives Artist's Sketch Box
from Long Beach, CA
I use this sketch box to carry drawing tools and it serves the purpose well. The construction is very good quality made of real wood. It's a sturdy box that should last a long time. I find the palette a little small for use as an oil sketch box (the palette itself is particle board), but for toting/protecting drawing supplies & pens, etc. it's great.
