    need ideas for desk pen stand

    Nobody tell now....I plan to make my son and daughter-in-law desk pen sets. They will be made from the Koa wood I bought while in Hawaii. The pens will be full-sized Gents. I will make desk stands for them and put some laser engraving on the stands. However, I am seriously lacking in the clever or artistic department with things like this. All my creatively deprived brain can come up with is a base with two uprights to lay the pens on. Any ideas will be appreciated.

    That is very nice. I have my stands fairly well along already with a design I cooked up. Not easy for unimaginative me. The bases are at the laser engravers now. My shop time has been very limited lately. Once back, I need to assemble then turn the pens. Will photo when all is finished.

    Thanks, but I'm the only antique in his life.
