I bought a similar-looking stand once. Terrible finish of the wood (tiny splinters sticking out everywhere), and it was wobbly on a perfectly level glass tabletop. The Amazon seller I bought it from didn't even want to bother with me returning it, he just refunded me and said I could toss it. The Lanier stand is obviously a luxury product and priced accordingly. Nobody needs a hundred dollar pen stand. But let's not pretend that any cheap crap you can find on the Internet is a perfect substitute.

I have to mention this one last point--if you take a look at the photos shown, there isn't one single real pen in the whole mess. They're all junk, everyone of them--kit pens and Levengers--all crap. Just between you and me--I don't trust a bartender that doesn't drink.

Slightly off topic but... Levenger Truewriters are most certainly not crap. I have owned and used a lot of pens, well over 150. Restoring vintage pens is a hobby. Truewriters are good for what they are, a well made modern cartridge/converter filler with a German nib that is a reliable writer. Interchangeable nibs are easily swapped out by the user. I used one for 15 years for grading student papers and it never failed to write. As for the object in question, it is a glorified test tube rack.

"Good for what they are" is a very low bar, Herr Professor. All shit pens are good for what they are; shit pens. What Levengers are not good for, are good fountain pens. Of course they write, damn near any pen does, but that's hardly a reason to cough up what Levenger charges for them, nor is it justification for what you end up with should you fall for Levnenger's schmalzy, pseudo intellectual/literary hype and their cheesy candy-colors--as evidently you have, Herr Professor? And on more than one occasion it would seem, as well! This leads me to surmise, among other things, that you are neither a professor of Phycology or Economics! As to your pen collecting and restoration qualifications, I too have dabbled in the dark arts of pendom and I assure you my pens are legion and my restorative powers are great. I have written extensively on shit pens and have been published many times--right here on MD (where shit pens are often found). Indeed, many would call me a shit pen expert! So you see, Herr Professor, you contradict me at the risk of revealing your true identity! You are a Levenger groupie!!! Don't try to claim otherwise, Herr Professor! Do you deny for instance that you own, and have often been seen carrying a Circa Herringbone Bookcloth Foldover Notebook with corresponding Rose Gold Aluminum 1" Circa Discs? Do you?! I thought so! And tell me, Herr Professor, do you not carry your extensive collection of Truewriters in a Mocha Bomber Jacket Pen Case with Pouch? Do you?! Answer me!! Of course you do; you and your kind always does! My advise to you, Herr Professor, is to buy some new pens--before it's too late!

I don't care how nice it may be, this is just a piece of wood with holes cut in it. The fact that Lanier charges $100 for it is highway robbery. Do yourself a favor. Go to amazon and search for "Wooden Test Tube Rack". Here you will find options which are nearly as nice for around $12 dollars. Take the money you didn't spend on the rack, and treat yourself to a new journal, or some new inks, or whatever else suits your fancy. Other than displaying my pens, I haven't thought once about the fact that my racks are technically built for test tubes rather than pens. They look nice, are sturdy, and cost next to nothing. Just my .02

And not only can you put them in a test tube holder, you can also put them in a test tube!

This would be a very simple craft project, even for someone without a woodshop or many tools. Most local hardwood dealers will have small cuts of exotic woods available if you're really craving one of these looks. Sure, the retail price isn't terribly outlandish, but its still a considerable markup on doing it yourself.

Ebony ~$100 per Board-Foot Bocote ~$40/BF Rosewood ~$25/BF Bubinga ~$15/BF Maple ~$5/BF Walnut ~$4/BF These are 4/4 (1" thick) non-bulk, small, quantity prices. Bulk prices are lower, of course. Regardless, $100 is not a crazy price. What does bother me is that it's the same price for all types of wood.

$100? Is this for folks who don't own a drill-press?

That's waaay too expensive. I made a stand from leftovers: 2 pieces of aluminum profile for LED strip, heat gun glue, carbon pattern vinyl film. Still there's a space for improvement though.

Yes, if you mean cavities between the holes. It's a solid block of glue with cylindrical holes for pens.

The through drill & capped design of the ebony stand-offs totally takes away from the aesthetic, and makes it look cheap. Look exotic hardwood is expensive, so the price isn't that far off. This is all CNC'ed from one side of the board, hence the through holes on the stand-offs. To hide that, they would have to make a jig so they can flip the board and keep it registered, then make pocket holes for the stand-offs. Even then, the pocket holes would have to be round holes and getting round ebony dowels is even more expensive.
That being said, I think I'll make my own (when I have time) since I have access to all this equipment.
