I Made a Pen Stand!

I like woodworking. I mean REALLY like woodworking. Unfortunately, I haven’t had the space or the tools to do it since I move away from home several years ago.

Well, a couple finicky vintage pens changed all that. They only like to be stored nib up. If stored on their sides they spit ink. So, I needed to find a way to safely store them nib up: enter the pen stand.

I knocked this together with very little:

2’x2″x1″ piece of red oak
1 piece of 3/8″ oak dowel
Drill
1 3/8″ drill bit
1 3/4″ drill bit
Saw
Wood glue
Nails (optional)
Sand Paper
ruler
Pencil

The result:

Pen Stand
