Chopsticks always go in pairs. But in a house where all the family members use chopsticks, there are a bunch of unpaired chopsticks in a cabinet drawer or a chopstick stand. For every meal someone has to find right pairs among all those chopsticks. Why not put them away in pairs in the first place?

Jigsaw Sticks

First of all: why aren’t chopsticks made to be bundled by themselves?

This jigsaw-puzzle-like projected part also functions as a chopstick stand. So when you place these sticks on a table, the tips are raised.

Chopstick Rest & Bundler

What about making a chopstick rest?

Stand it on its side and it works as a chopstick stand.

There is a magnet inside the back of it, so it sticks with another stand to make it more stable to stand.
