Wood pens that have been turned on a lathe are awesome. Unfortunately, not everyone owns a lathe (although you can make your own). The Twig Pen/Pencil is a good alternative to a turned pen, and it stills maintains an aura of originality. I got the idea for this project here. I give all credit for the idea to the author who created the aforementioned link.
Note: For this project you don't need a lathe, but you will still need some other basic tools.
