Default Score!

Hello,

A while back I read a post where one of the members was saying that he picked up a great old butcher block cutting board that would make great blanks at a thrift store. Since then I have been stopping at thrift and antique stores when I get the chance just to see if they have anything interesting.

Yesterday, I just happened to pass a Goodwill store and decided to stop. Check out what I found!!!







Slimlines fit perfectly in the holes! It won't close with the pens in it but it will be great for displaying them. I have no idea what it might have originally been used for since whatever it meant to hold couldn't be more than about 3" long for it to close but it's going to work great for me!!!

Great find. It was probably originally a cigarette holder from the 1930's or 40's. I have a similar one but the holder pops up from the middle.
