Default Competiton Pens and Stand

My Pen Display Stand and the 5 pens from a competition on another page

The Pen Stand was made using
Copper Pipe And Fittings
Copper Wire Twisted to create a Rope appearance
Aluminum Tape
Hand Wound Copper Springs
Bullet Cartridges
Cardboard and a Chunk of Pine

The Pickies show some close ups with and without the Pens

The Pens
Lucky - Bicycle Owls Playing Card with Holographix Body and Watch Gears

Lucky - Sinners Playing Card with Black Aluminum Body and Watch Gears

Retro - Bicycle Armageddon Playing Card, The idea on the body of the pen was to create a Post Apocalyptic Wasteland, ruined train tracks and road crossing, boulders, watch parts, sacrificial alters and much more

ProX - The End of the Line, all is well until you get to the Junkyard at the end of the line

Bolt Tech Pen - Different Metallic Paints splash around, Watch Gears, Copper Wire & Armour Plates

The pen stand was a joy to make and i have many new ideas for different stands in the future

C&C Welcome

That is one great pen display stand!! First, it is an eye catcher to draw the folks in for a closer look and then they can zero in on your fantastic pens! Very well done indeed....looks like a pen stand contest winner to me👍

Excellent Presentation Mik,
Sorry and Regrettably I don't have an hour to do it all Justice,
Suffice to Say, Wow.
Great Work.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
