Sick of a cluttered desk? Where is that pen?
Look no further! Grab a car based desk tidy for the petrolhead in you. There are some rare items in the new range and a whole range of hardwoods and reclaimed fifty three year old pine.
I can’t lie, I’ve had fun designing and making these and I’ve two secret favourites. They’re the PI, ideal for a maths teacher but taken from the souped up Triumph 2000 in the 2.5 straight six Power Injected version, that’s a pillar badge from 1963-77. My second fave is the Hillman Imp ‘Super’ badge, again from the 70’s and the nick in the top looks like a fault, but that’s where the ‘I’ in Imp sat on top of the super badge.
In no particular order:
- Honda – A CB750 tank badge mounted on mahogany, three pen.
- Vanden Plas – A boot badge from the Vanden Plas range, maybe a Princess (pre-Leyland) on reclaimed 1963 pine, waxed only.
- Vertical M – MG BGT centre boot badge. 1970’s mounted on mahogany.
- Vertical D – Daimler bonnet centre on 1963 pine. Nail holes and fatigued. Antique oil finish.
- Vertical PI – Triumph 2.5PI, pillar badge mounted on two tone reclaimed oak.
- Vertical MG – Midget / B / GT badge mounted on mahogany block.
- Horizontal MG – As above but mounted on distressed reclaimed mahogany, 3 pen.
- Vertical CL – Triumph 2.5CL model, pillar badge mounted on reclaimed, distressed mahogany.
- Vertical Ghia – 1970’s trim badge, single or two pen in mahogany.
- Horizontal Super – Hillman Imp Super boot badge, single pen.
- Horizontal Singer – Singer cars boot badge, three pen on slightly distressed reclaimed mahogany.
