Default Pen display

Woohoo! Sold a few more pens but more importantly (to me) I now have a local retail outlet
that's going to see how marketing my pens goes. :D
So, only built two pens tonight because I had to knock something out so they could
display a few pens. I turned a black walnut dowel and used some black walnut and maple to
cobble this stand together:



The stand will hold seven pens. Hopefully, I'll have to make a bigger one for them soon.

Nice looking stand Gary and congrats on the selling location. I have a few pens in a local book store on consignment. I started out with a small display and now have a big locking display. I mention the locking display because this is something you may want to consider. Good luck!

Gary,
Nice stand... Simple and elegant.
Mind if I copy it for my booth?

Mark,
Quite a coincidence -- this retailer is a new bookstore too.
Thanks for the idea of a locking cabinet. I hope I'll need it.
Chuck & Pete: Copy away. [;)]
Skye -- I don't understand your post. Please explain.

Nice looking. But check your pens from time to time. I made some stands from red cedar and the contact with the stand ruined the finish where it touched. Might just have been the cedar that was the culprit, I'm not sure. But when I needed a stand again, I bought an acrylic from CS.

Frank,
Good advice about contact issues. So, maybe I'll coat the contact points with a
bit of CA. We know that cured CA can't hurt the pen.
