I decided that I wanted to put some of my frequently used fountain pens in a cup on my desk for quick access. But what kind of cup did I want to use? A coffee cup? A Ball jar? Something else?
After thinking about it a bit, I decided it would be cool to put them in a lab beaker made of borosilicate (thermal shock resistant) glass. After checking the measurements, I settled on a 250 ml beaker and placed an order on eBay. The price was a bit more than $7 with shipping.
I think it has a high-tech look and the beaker is perfect for that purpose. Where do you keep your frequently used pens?
