Army Painter Ink Stand

It was another of those frustrating can't-seem-to-get-anything-done-tonight nights at BuildBrighton last night. I took all the wrong gear along (wrong PIC chips to code up for our electronic board game, forgot the clamp for the SOIC programmer, there was no solder left at the space anyway) so left the electronics-y stuff and made another stand for my Army Painter paints.

Thankfully the laser cutter was behaving (though cutting at 15% speed to ensure a good cut is painfully and tediously slow) so I managed to get this knocked up in a pretty short space of time:


Sometimes you just need to  make something - however simple - to make it all feel worthwhile :)
Here's a link to the SVG for making one - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9HAI5y47e_WdjdSeEFUREJjWUE/edit?usp=sharing

The centre hole is for 16mm dowel - 15mm is more common, so edit in Inkscrape as necessary.
Inks and paints together look pretty cool. Now I just need to learn how to use them to paint some decent miniatures!
