Tonight’s project was a home for my Sharpie collection. These racks are modular so you can expand them as needed. They can be used horizontally or vertically, and are intended for markers like Sharpies that are meant to be stored horizontally so the tips don’t dry out.
This is designed for 1/8" draftboard or Baltic birch. It’s kerf-adjusted for a very snug fit (I hate glue and love rubber mallets), so try a test fit of two smaller pieces before you commit to an entire sheet.
The design below is for two shelves. Each rack holds 10 pens and measures 1" tall, 4" deep, and 7" across.

Be sure to set the part numbers to Score, or Ignore. I recommend assembling the components in the order they’re numbered: assemble the sides and racks first, then fit that frame into a shelf, and the next shelf on top. Stay consistent about the orientation of the tabs (two tabs down, one tab up) so you can add more shelves if desired.
