    a couple of styli or styluses which ever

    Here's a couple of styli (it sounds more professional) that I made for my MIL that she is going to use as stocking stuffers. She saw them at a local craft show awhile back and asked me if I could make her a few. The wood is palm on the short one and spalted maple on the long one. I know you don't need a stylus for the I stuff, but I've found that using my son's Ipod my fat fingers often hits things I don't want the hit. It plugs into the ear phone jack so you can keep up with it.

    They look great John!
    What do they do with them when not in use?
    I don't see a pocket clip, just a stringy thing.

    Fixed that for ya, Mohammad.

    They look great John. I like the idea of using the headphone jack as a place to anchor the stylus when it's not in use, although if the jack is already being used, a pocket clip like Les mentioned sounds like a good idea.

    Les, the stringy thing has a hard plastic thing that fits into the ear bud jack. You can store it there when not in use. I did wonder what to do with it if you were using the jack. Putting a clip on as well would be a good idea. I have to make one more and will include a clip with this one.
