I needed a quick solution to display some pens I’ll be selling at craft show in a few weeks. I’ve been messing around with a bunch of live edge walnut and this piece would have been destined for the burn pile except I hate throwing anything away. I didn’t have a plan or even an idea of what it was going to be when I started. The pieces are just screwed together and finished with spray lacquer. The pen tips sit in a hole drilled with a countersink bit. To give the pens somewhere to rest on the back edge, I angled the rack on the drill press and drilled through the top edge with a forstner bit. I have each pen sitting at a different angle, but I’m not sure I wouldn’t have been happier to have them all lined up in a row instead. Live and learn. Thanks for looking.
