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.

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.
