Well, I took the box yesterday to my workshop and showed it to my students. THEY ALL LOVED IT! I am hoping you will get more orders. Everybody loved the build of it and especially the magnets! Hoping to use it this weekend while I paint some models in a Rose Garden.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know. I will post a link on my blog for people to find you..
(Note from Ben--Glady's website is worth checking out!)
I just got my new pochade box and I have to say I am EXTREMELY IMPRESSED. I absolutely love it! What a great design you have come up with. The magnets, the torsion hinges and the panel holding system are brilliant. It is exactly what I wanted and then some. I plan to keep this little box with me all the time and bang out small oil sketches by the hundreds! It's the best $200 I've ever spent! Also, I appreciate you working it in to accommodate my schedule.
(Note from Ben--Martin's website is a rewarding visit!)
I purchased the 8x10 Blackfoot with 9x12 piggyback and loved using it during my heli-painting trip with Robert Genn, Liz Wiltzen, and the rest of the Bugaboo 10. I have since used the box on many plein air adventures. I am very grateful to Ben for his quality workmanship and great customer service, so, just for fun and as a thank you, I decided to make a video of opening the box and taking my first look.
