  • Birdhouses with Bic pen refills

    Previously I posted some pens made using drill press, scroll saw, and sanders.
    You can view my method at post # 11 here http://www.scrollsawer.com/forum/gen...-saw/40425.htm
    I also made these with this method.

    My little birdhouse pens were made with the scroll saw to cut out the houses, then turned on my lathe. Except for one pen, no glue was used on these. Pens have Bic pen ink refills, el cheapo. I purchased them for 97 cents, 10 in a pack at Walmart.
    What a fun project, sure would love to see others making some, with or without a lathe.

                    Thanks everyone for your kind comments, much appreciated.

                    Sweeeet pen Trout, they serve to be a great use of those scraps. Looks like yellow heart, and purple heart that you must have had left over from your fantastic skateboard bear project.

                      Great idea, and excellant workmanship. So, can these be made without a lathe? I have tons of scraps...these great projects could be the answer!

                          Wood Dog, really nice and for less then a buck, Good job.
                          If I wanted to do a pen with a skill on it. How wide can the skill be before it's turned down,

                            Those are wonderful WD. I want to give the birdhouses a try - maybe the pens too.
