    Pen Display Case Finished(?)

    I'm not sure I really like it but here is the Pen Display I came up with. I probably won't replace it with something better just because I'm too lazy to build something else if this will do the job.

    Made of oak it holds twelve pens. It can be used in the orientation shown or stood up on the end and used in a taller configuration which takes up less desk space but is a bit less stable.

    As usual, the photography sucks! Any comments/criticisms are welcome and appreciated.

    I like it very much Gord, I need to make something similar.

    I like. Prefer the laying down view, displays the pens more attractively.
    I believe I will plagerize.....er....uh....take inspiration from that idea and make some of my own.
    BTW, interesting clip on a couple of those. e.g. the top one. What kit/supplier did those come from?

    I got those kits from KMS Tools http://www.kmstools.com/. I like that clip a lot better than the ones with the black strip in them.

    Great idea, and nice job putting it together. I'll log that idea away for possible future use.

    Frank, Woodturningz has them too (in every plating). I quit getting the black striped ones over two years ago.

    Gord I can't say anything about the pen boxes as here they show up as blue boxes with ? in them. But thanks for the link to another tool supplier (I think!).
