Can never find a pen when you need one? Make your own fun and colourful acrylic pen box to store all your stationary and keep your desk neat and tidy. This design is simple yet effective and will be a great feature of any desk. Not only have we worked with acrylic remnants in a variety of colours, we have also experimented in alder and poplar plywood, making this handy organiser suitable for any age.
