It wasn’t too long after the introduction of the 9x12 Guerrilla Box™ that Carl decided to add the 6x8 ThumBox™ to the line. The 6x8 ThumBox™ featured the same quality design and craftsmanship of the 9x12 Guerrilla Box™ but also featured a thumbhole in the bottom so that it could be handheld. The original 6x8 ThumBox™ was introduced in 2006. In 2011 the 6x8 ThumBox™ evolved in response to customer demand into the 6x8 ThumBox™ V2. This slimmer, lighter-weight version was introduced in late 2011 and features a simplified design that makes it easier to carry. The new 6x8 ThumBox™ V2 still has all the high-quality features and accessories that made the original so popular.

Carl says: “This box is descended from an original design that had homemade aluminum lid brackets to make the angle fully adjustable. Another feature that I added to this design was the raised front lip to make the lid compartment fully enclosed, protecting the paintings during transport. I came to use this lip as a hand rest – a built-in ‘mahl stick.’ I’ve used that original pochade for more paintings over the years than any other.
This redesign of the ThumBox™ is based on an ultra-light pochade box that I built to use while doing volunteer work in the back country of Bolivia in the 1990s'”
