I have been thinking about doing a few craft shows this year. First thing I need is a way to display my pens.
Picture 1 – Two prototypes I made to decide on the design. Each of theses racks holds 11 pens.
Picture 2 – Four with final curved design. Adjusted layout slightly. Each of these racks holds 12 pens.
Picture 3 – Front view showing 270 cartridge supports.
Picture 4 – Front showing more traditional supports.
Picture 5 – The whole family of pen racks. These will give me a total of 70 pen spaces, not counting the individual custom racks.
All of the wood is Red Oak from my cutoffs bin. Spindles are stock spindles from Hobby Lobby. Cartridges are from cleaning up at the shooting range. Stained wood to even out the colors, then three coats of gloss polyurethane.
Thanks for looking.
