I have turned stick pens for years. They make a great give away and this year I decided to give all 45 of my cousins on my late father's side of the family at our annual reunion in a couple weeks. I decided to make a few extra so I did 60. I got the Bic pens at Wally World. They were a dozen in a package for $1.17 of roughly 10 cents each. I would hope my labor is worth the other two cents. I put a personal touch to mine by making brass inserts where the Bic ink cartridge is inserted using a Unimat Hobby lathe. The pens are made from some left over Brazilian Cherry flooring and the bases were made from Poplar scavenged from pallets where I had worked. I set the bases out in the sun to darken them up a bit. Here is the Cap'n Eddie 12 Cent Pen video in case some have not seen it.
