PENS HOLDER & STORAGE

This is the fourth pens holder that I made for myself without intention to sell. But, while we were in demo, people showed interested in buying them without any pen and attracted me with the money they offered. I am not sure what they want to use them for.
This holder takes 20 pens instead of 18 with 250 mm diameter and bigger storage and, like the others, rotates around itself to display all the pens in attractive way. The drawer nob and the handle that helps rotating the pens are from left over from another projects and made out of plywood. They are all my own design.
Merry X-mas and happy New Year.

Really nice Sam and should be a great seller. Love the way you have used the plywood to make it the feature.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and family.

Great idea! Thanks for sharing.

Is the drawer just a friction fit? And what are you using for a bearing on your lazy suzan? Just it just rest in a hole, or is it captured in some way?

Beautiful pen rack, Sam. I love those plywood knobs and center support!!!!
Funny you should say that about selling your display. At my last show, someone bought my wine bottle stopper rack right out from under all my stoppers!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family, Sam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.............................Jim

Looks good Sam. Somthing similar to what I make. If the money is right go ahead and sell them. Maybe you found something that can translate to a bit of cash flow. Good luck.

Excellent idea Sam and well designed & made. You could use that idea for lots of things around the house like small spice bottles.

Thank you all for your comments.
Underdog: I used 135 mm bearing to fit the lazy Suzan as shown in photo 1.
and you need to drill 2 holes in the box to fit it, as shown in photo 2
and that is how it looks without pens.

Well designed and implemented. Your pen holder is quite nice. It amazes me how something as simple as Plywood can become an artistic beauty when turned. Nice job.
