Cork Pen Rest

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

This quick project is part2 of repurposing cork used in wine bottles.

I made a pen rest for dip pens. I need to be extra carefull with sharp nibs. I don't want pens rolling around on my desk or dropped on a floor with nibs broken. I got this idea from chopstick rest.

I cut a wine cork into halves. Please be carefull if you use a utility knife.

To make dents for the neck of pens, I used a micro power tool. You can use the pen body with wrapping a piece of sandpaper around as a sanding stick.

My pens rest nicely on the cork.

It could be this way as you prefer.
