Pen turning is addictive. After giving away so meny pens its time to start thinking about acutally trying to market them. The following is a display case I designed to put into stores from the sketchup design stage to the finished product. Hope you enjoy this simple yet effective (I think) display case

Very nice, I like the finger joints…

I’d like to try my hand at turning someday… (I’ve got to get a lathe first!)

Nice work. Your design, with modifications, could be used for other objects like watches, pins, etc. instead of pens.

For a simpler design (and for use with my barrister’s bookcase), I went with a pen stand that was commercially available at one time from a high-end office supplies retailer. You can see that stand here:
