Lazy Susan Pen Displayer displays 18 pens in an easy and attractive way as it rotates to show the pen you like.
More pens are in the little box to replace any pen being sold. You see a rubber band in the top disc to secure pen positions. I may get rid of the rubber band in the next one.

It’s a beauty Sam, I hope this is a display to sell your work, or else you do a lot of writing.

nice display sam

maybe a iner-tube or leather band
glued to the arms
cut in the center of each hole
to make little ‘gates’
like saloon swinging doors

I might just have to make a similar display.

Very cool display. I need to dream up something like that for bracelets. I like the storage drawer too.

Nice design. A lot of good thought went into that piece. Thanks for sharing….........Jim

This is beatiful, and an inspiration… I’ve been thinking about making a “pen holder” for my office desk, and this is perfect for display and keeping them from scratch up against ech other.
With respect to your rubber band dilemma, two thoughts come to mind:
1) I wonder if fishing pole storage clips would work? Something like – http://www.austinkayak.com/products/3331/Sea-Dog-Pole-Storage-Clip.html
2) Could you drill the top holes such that they are more of a C shape (mabe leave a slot for the pen clip), and then line those hole with felt?

I have friends and my son who are avid pen collectors. This would be a nice gift idea. Really good work.

Thank you all for your comments.
There were few suggestions to solve the rubber band dilmma, thanks for that. As a result, I designed, in my mind only, something similar and close to your ideas, but in my oppinion, it has to be completely out of timber.
And, of course, I dont mind if someone plagiarizes my idea :)
