Very interesting and clever project. Do you have a CNC?

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

I am very pleased thank you!
I don't have my own CNC, so I just designed and assembled this stand. The blanks of the parts were made in the workshop according to my drawings.

Thanks for the info. I know the prices for CNC keep dropping. I see them at the woodworking store and marvel at the precision, of the machines and their output. I was trying to figure out how you made those pieces.

I used laser cutting and engraving to make the parts. Most of the parts are plywood and some of the stand are acrylic.

The pattern is made with epoxy resin. The size of this part is 300x70mm, 3mm thick.

Here are some photos of the process of creating the first faceplate with a pattern.
And also photos of the creation of the second faceplate.

Thanks for posting those. Very interesting process. And a very nice finished product.

Thanks for posting this. You're having fun with your fountain pens.

Love the pen stand in all it's design changes!

 

You also appear to have settled on one pen model. Is it the Platinum? Which one?

It's all about the greys...

No, I still use 4 fountain pen models from 3 Japanese manufacturers: Platinum DP-1000AN EF nib, Sailor 11-0073-120 EF nib, Pilot P-DPP-70 EF nib, Pilot P-DPP-1S EF nib.

 

And in the previous post, only sketches of the holders were shown, which I still have not made. Therefore, in those images, the same pen model is everywhere.

I love how modular & customizable this is.  Watching you iterate and refine is a true pleasure!

This is really cool! I love how you're always changing it up. The addition of what color ink is in each pen was a very nice touch. Very clever.

Oh wow! Those are fantastic. Excellent job putting those together. I really like the dragon themed one.

Very nice!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Don't know where to start?  Look at the Inky Topics O'day.  Then, see inks sorted by color: Blue Purple Brown Red Green Dark Green Orange Black Pinks Yellows Blue-Blacks Grey/Gray UVInks Turquoise/Teal MURKY
