I just wanted to share my homemade pen tray finished recently. It took me a couple of hours today to complete it with some wood, glue, grill sticks (as seperators), thick cardboard and a piece of velvety linen fabric. The wood is finished with a few coats of wood oil. I want to add a clear plexiglass lid with a pair of mini hinges. The pen collection is a modest one now. A few more P-51 and a MB-149 may fill in the empty slots in the near future.

 

Thanks!

It looks great! I think that the minimalist design makes the pens stand out.

Looks great. I always feel envious about people skilled enough to do these DIY cases.  :wub:

Here is the final product. The lid is cut from clear polystyrene sheet of 3mm thickness. It extends 2mm off the front side eliminating the need for a handle to lift the lid. It turned out pretty handsome. Thanks to all for your kind comments.

That's a lovely box, and a resourceful use of grill sticks!

That's a great looking case. The neutral colors make the pens stand out, and at least to me the hinges accentuate the gold trim on the pens.
