Comments about Art Alternatives Artist's Pencil Pod:
I love being able to take pencils anywhere in a solid container. I can chuck it in a bag and be on my way. I leave it out on my desk when not taking it somewhere. It looks nice just sitting there!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

LOVELY BUT TOO SHORT FOR REGULAR PENCILS
I assumed pencils were of standard lengths, but I guess I was mistaken. The boxes are well made and pleasing to the hand and eye, but useless to me because I need them for standard length writing pencils.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from A little cabin in the woods
I was so happy when I got this pencil pod, since it seems to be very well made and sturdy - unlike a lot of pencil holders. It's a little on the expensive side, but for the quality alone I thought it would be worth it. Unfortunately I was really disappointed when I actually started to use it. The lid is almost impossible to slide on and off, even with only one or two pencils in it (or even when it's empty, for that matter. I figured that maybe the grooves weren't quite whittled down enough, so I tried to "wear them in" by opening and closing it multiple times, to no avail). The other reviewers have said that their lids slide on easily, so my guess is that I just got unlucky and got a bad one. Now I can't even put the lid on it at all, or it won't come off, so it's pretty much useless to me, but I didn't want to pay to ship it back. It's too bad because if the lid had worked, I would have used it all the time - the design and quality are otherwise great.
nice wooden case
from Andover MA
I bought this pod because I like the feel of wood. The top slides on and off easily and it holds my 12 pencils perfectly. It's a pleasure to use.

Does not hold 12 pencils
from Cincinnati, OH
The box itself is kind of nice. It's solid wood and the lid slides in and out pretty well, until you try to put 12 pencils in it. I bought this specifically to hold the 12 Derwent pencils I was buying online at the same time, so I would have a case to transport the colors I needed. The box is too small so only 11 pencils can fit inside. It costs too much to not even hold a dozen pencils. Too bad, it looked like it would be perfect.
