Thanks John, I looked at portfolio box, they have some great boxes, I bookmarked them for future purchases. I didnt see that many examples of portfolios on it though, and their folded sides style that they did have, looked a bit to cumbersome for general flip out use and handling.

I will take your suggestion and take another look at some more Prat 8x10 models. I have a nice large model that fits 11x14s easily, and it is well made out of leather with a zipper and good carrying handle.

thanks!
