I’ve been so impressed with what everyone here has done, and all of the sharing, that I decided to get organized before I attempted tile engraving and coloring. The designs I have seen others produce and paint have been amazing, and with all of the talk about using Sharpies (especially the oil-based ones), I decided to buy a large set (43 different ones in various colors and tip sizes) from Amazon.
That’s quite a lot of Sharpies, and I knew to effectively use them, I needed to have something to hold them in order to keep them straight.
The amazing thing about the Glowforge (as you all know) is how easy it is to take something from concept to reality. It took about 30 minutes of design, and a bit of tweaking (but not much) to create the holder below.
I’ve decided to share with the community because of all that I’ve already learned from so many of you in such a short time. I’ve included a few pics as well, both with the empty holder and with the assortment included.
I also have left some extra pen spaces for when I (or any of you) add even more to your collection.
I hope you all enjoy!

NOTE: To make the three-tiered version that is pictured, you will need to print the cutout with the holes twice. Regardless of whether or not you use a two- or three- tiered version, you will need to print two extra of the side braces. (it won’t fit on a single sheet of draftboard).
