Ink Drop Soup: Back Me Up (The Pen Rest)

8 02 2015

Because I can’t resist these sorts of things but am not made of infinite money, I have an unofficial Kickstarter budget for myself. It isn’t any kind of dollar amount, rather, it’s number of projects outstanding at a given time. My tolerance is approximately 3 projects having my money with me not yet having my reward. With only two projects outstanding right now (the Nexus minimal fountain pen and the Scanadu Scout which should be arriving within a week), the time was right to throw my money at something else. I picked The Pen Rest

I don't have this pen though. See aforementioned limitations of money

In order to better appreciate the pens I already have, I’ve been shifting a lot of my personal purchases toward pen-life support objects (cases, ink, nibs, nib altering implements, etc.). The Pen Rest is in the right place at the right time, so I’ve backed it. My plan is for enough other people to back it that we reach the second stretch goal because I REALLY want to be able to easily hang it on the wall. I have plans for a very awesome DIY Murphy Desk in which I plan to store inks and pens and nib altering stuff and in which it would be PERFECT to hang this Pen Rest on the wall. Otherwise I’ll just have to put it on the desk, where there is a significant chance of the cat slowly pushing it off the desk and onto the floor.

One day I'd like some kind of wood top for it. But I'm getting way ahead of myself

I’ve only backed for one Pen Rest at this time, but there’s a reward level for up to nine of them. They are stackable (the top you see in this picture is removable) and interlocking. They could go all the way from the floor to the ceiling if you wanted.

Feel free to back this many or more

Make my desk dreams come true, and I suppose get a cool pen rest for yourself in doing so. :)
