Finding ways to 'unjunk' junked items and converting seemingly useless things into some usefulness can be an interesting pastime.... if we have a will and whim. Here are some of my own projects.

Pen stand into book holder
The yellow teak pen stand cum visiting card holder [see slits] was a gift from a colleague many years ago. After a while these things become useless. But I found further use for this. I converted it into a book stand also. It can hold small booklets and letters. I had two square rosewood pieces that matched the width of the stand. They were from my father's 1930 coin box, broken and not survived time. I drilled four holes to fix the bent stiff wire and then fastened these rosewood pieces at both ends. Lo, the holder was ready for better use.
