Designing A Storage/display/repair Corner

Recommended Posts

Greetings. I am renovating my home and am considering using an available alcove (3 feet wide and 2.5 feet deep) to build a combination storage, display and restoration workbench unit for my vintage fountain pen collection. Some combination of display shelves (for the good stuff), cabinets and drawers (for most of the rest) and a flat surface on which to repair, restore, or just mess around with my pens. Looking for inspiration in the form of photos, design drawings or descriptions of other vertically-oriented home pen storage/display/repair units. If you have anything like that in your home (or if you've ever dreamed of building one), I'd love to see or hear about it. Thanks.

I have my skull cave (long time phantom fan) below the stairs. A desk with a case for current pens, another box for my tools - pliers, Arkansas stone, polishing papers and yet another box for my inks...

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!

      Cold fusion, down the toilet? Seems fitting!

      "Thank Heavens! I thought you were going to tell me I had Dandruff!"  So they couldn't come up with something really worthy of slipping you the Mickey Finn?? OH MY, and folate? Maybe more dandelion green salad for you! ...
