Desk Jockeys

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.
