The Hobo Rustic Pen.
Walking in the woods one day while searching for rodent droppings, I came across a twig that really caught my eye – the left one. Needless to say I had to have it and make something really useful and pathetic to grace my collection of other odd ball projects.
I picked it up and ran to my wittle hut (nature was calling) and was relieved holding the twig between my teeth. Well I thought I might make a note of where I found it, the weather conditions, time of day and how this twig came into my possession. I looked around and for writing instrument, but realised I had left it at the 12 step meeting, so I thought – that’s what I’ll do, I’ll make a twig pen a la nature.

The rustic pen is a fully working writing instrument with a push on cap and an ink level indicator on the barrel.

I know all LJs will eat their hearts out and want one like it, but try as you may, I won’t hear you because I blocked you.

Surely one of the best pens we have seen on this site for a long time.

You don’t make wands as well, do you?

I think you need to make a bigger one to fit the cap.

The cap looks like a hardened Jelly Donut hole.

I may come back and comment more on this one when I am able to regain my composure from laughing so hard.
