After I had constructed my original pen holder for myself (here), people from work started asking me what it’d take to make one for them. I told them about $40 (mainly to reimburse the cost of the wood pen blanks I bought with the red, black, blue, and green naturally colored woods).
So here’s my first commission and pen holder #2 made for a right-hander (mine was left-handed). This is made from scrap Black Walnut on the outsides, and a strip of cherry down the middle. The colored-wood inlay was done by hand with chisel and saw. Sanding (I hate hand-sanding) was done with an orbital sander. And lastly, I bought a branding iron to brand my projects with, so I had to test it out on the pen holder!
