My homemade fountain desk pen stand



Recommended Posts

Hello!
This is my first post here.

 

I love writing with long-barrel fountain pens, so in 2018 I bought some cheap modern desk pens.
These were Platinum, Sailor and Pilot desk pens. All these pens come with original caps.

But to make it convenient to write with these pens, it became necessary to make a stand for them.
So in the same year I made a simple acrylic stand for five desk pens.

 

First of all, I made such holders for each pen.

As a result, I got such a product.

So it was placed on my desk.

After 2 years, I decided to make a new stand for the same pens.

 

First of all, I redesigned the pen holders.

I recently managed to finish assembling this stand. In the end, I got this thing.

And now the stand has taken its place on my desk.

Each pen holder has little movement.

How very clever :)

 

I have to admit, whilst I appreciate the ingenuity of v2, I love the sheer Meccano-esque nuttiness of the first one!

Me too. Great work. Love the obvious passion.

This can be fun. At first glance, the first version looks like a complex product, but it is very easy to manufacture, but the second version of the stand has a very simple shape, but rather difficult to manufacture. Despite this, the second version of the stand turned out to be more functional and more practical in use.

The second version of the stand allows you to slightly change the appearance of the product by replacing removable parts. For example like this.spacer.png

I also want to make a new front panel with a pattern.

Made a new "skin" for my pen stand.
Also now colored caps on pens holders represent the color of ink in each pen.

Truly amazing. You left me speechless.

Well, both the first and the latest (in all its incarnations) are really original and (in their own way)  very stylish. I like the ability to change covers and colors, and the design. It's really an impressive piece of art.

Thanks for the kind words.

I am not a professional painter, not a designer, and I do not know how to draw beautifully, therefore the pattern on the details is mainly determined by the shape of the product and the technology of its manufacture.

This modular stand design is just a consequence of the limited choice of materials and methods of their processing.
But this result of my work also satisfies me.

I know I'm just echoing what others have said...but these are beautiful, inventive, smart, fun!

Thank you for your comment. I am really very pleased.
It's funny, but when I see an interesting post, I also find it difficult to write a comment.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
