A Fun New Ball Point Pen!

For someone who, when not quilting has a piece of wood in one hand and a pocket knife in the other; this is a fun project. I picked this idea up from Steve Brown, carver and author. Just take one of those cheap ball point pens that we all have around, and pull the tip and the ink tube out. Take a 1/2 x 1/2 x 6 inch piece of wood, drill it out to accept the ink tube and the writing tip. Carve up the piece of wood, paint, and stuff the ink tube and writing tip in.

There you've got yourself a very unique pen.

Santa can now write his own lists and check them twice.

What a fun way to use small pieces of wood. I bet they'd sell fast at a flea market too. So fun for gifts and your family will love them because you made them.

I would think anyone looking for a small but unique gift item would buy these!
