This is a great desktop organizer. And while it was designed to store the Ink Blending Tools, I actually use it to store my mists and sprays. It works perfectly for that and now I have my mists on my desk ready to use whenever I want.
It holds the blending tools securely and yet they can be released with just one hand. I only wish you could buy stickers to identify each one. This will be used and not just for decoration!
this doesn't come with directions which is usually fine for me as I like to try & put things together on my own first, but this confused me and it was only 5 pieces. I put it together every way imaginable and it didn't look like the picture on the box, then finally I left the long post piece out of the equation and it looked like the picture on the first try. Not sure what the long piece is for other then to make it taller to hold longer objects probably, but it would have been nice to know that.
Other then that, it's a good solid base, cute and functional.
Used in this card: Happy "Bee"-day
Was happy to finally receive this. Would definately recommend this product. Will be getting another one soon to stack on top of this one. (just dont use the base and they can be stacked by screwing together.)
Bottom line: cheaply constructed. Despite sufficient packaging, some of the tabs on the holders were gnarly or bent, the machine-drilled screw-in components didn't line up properly, and once assembled it was so crooked I had to bend/flatten it like crazy just for the piece to sit flush. The carousel cannot be rotated with the finial (top piece), merely you spin it awkwardly with a push of the hand. Not a fan. It seems beloved by most so guess I'm the odd one out and perhaps I received a lemon.
In a plastics world, I'm always a sucker for a vintage-looking metal piece, but this was a big disappointment from Ranger. My blender tools actually made less of a footprint the way I was previously storing them. Oh well!
I have been wanting the craft spinner for quite some time and finally got it for myself for an early Christmas present! It doesn't take up a lot of space on my table and keeps my blending tools right at hand where I need them!
