I've been playing with the idea for this product for quite a while, and having just acquired the laser system, I've been able to bring it to market! This is a take-down pen stand, holding five pens, cut from 1/8" Baltic birch plywood (or .093 Acrylic, depending on the material choice). It disassembles for easy packing into a 4" x 4" x 3/8" space, and three or four will easily fit into a quart ziplock. Assembly only takes a few seconds, and when assembled it is quite solid. Eight will fit easily into a USPS Small Flat-Rate box! The pens shown are an assortment of Lamys, and a Noodler's Ahab. I've also used an X-Acto knife and a #2 pencil for anyone interested who is not familiar with factory fountain pens.
I am offering a number of options in terms of finish level, custom graphics and materials, starting from a bare-wood, unfinished version for your own decorating and finishing projects, to fully-finished versions with custom engraving.
This is definitely a departure from my usual hardwood offerings! I am attempting here to make an affordable, easy-to-pack stand for the pen-show or artisan/craft fair makers out there. Emphasis in this design is on ease of packing and low cost, hence offering the version without finish as the standard option. By omitting finish, I drop a large portion of the time and materials cost involved, so I can pass that saving along. I am also quite willing to discuss a volume discount, if you need a number of stands for your table display, etc.
Up to eight stands will ship in a single flat-rate box, larger orders will ship in a Medium box. Shipping overage will be refunded within 24 hours after your order is placed. This is my first time trying to set up combined shipping here on Etsy, so please be patient if I hosed something up!
