Making a pen holder

Trying to make the three row pen holder. Hole size is 3/8". the length is 16" if my calculation is correct.

I started my design but can’t remember how to get even spacing similar to the three level holder. I figure there is a 3/8" gap between holes

I will also take anybody’s suggestions


Draw the first one and then use the Move/Copy function to create the rest. Copy the hole over the requiste distance, hit Enter and immediately type xn where n is the number of additional holes.

Check your PMs.

Conversely, if you a working to a fixed length of wood and need the holes to be equidistant from each other, you draw the first one, copy it to the far end of the line then type /n followed by Enter. Again n = the number of copies. SU will then fill in all the intermediate holes between the first and last ones.

Mike, it was great to talk with you on Sunday. How did you get on with the holders? Have you got all those holes drilled, yet?
