Chair leg pen

I was playing around in the shop waiting for some glue to dry and had an old piece of a chair that was heading for the trash and decided it would make a nice different looking pen. So after cutting off one of the legs this is what I come up with. It's a one piece oak with a regular "Bic" style insert. It has a 5/32 hole drilled about 5" to accept the ink cartrige. I think I need to turn a cap for it or make a holder so it can be a desk pen.

Neat recycle project! And way better looking than the bic standard 'yuck pen. Instead of a cap, might I suggest using it in a desk type 'cup' mount...just an idea.

Now that's cool. Something different than the usual pen you see. Great job. Nice way to utilize wood scrap.

When it's's rustic
