I thought I would pass this inkwell holder idea along. If you have ever knocked over a container of ink or worried about doing so, this post is for you. I still use the old dip pens as well as the now popular Micron pens. This holder consists of a wood molding, with holes drilled in to hold those very small sealable plastic containers available at your local art and craft store. In my case I used something called a forstner bit that was a tad larger than the plastic cups.

Steve the containers are ¾” x ¾”. I refill with an eye dropper. The containers are very light weight, so the wood molding with the recesses is needed to prevent accidental spills. :)
