What would be nice is if you camouflage a lens as a log, and then mount it.

That would be something.

Could you make it into a pin hole lens might be cool.

Drill a hole in the middle and then use some foil tape to cover the hole before making a pin hole in the tape.

I think a baked potato would be nice. ;)

The OP Sealed the wood nicely, as evidenced by the glossiness. You gotta love "art"! Nicely done....

I bet you might make a better sale for lens cap and lens hood. I've seen a few camo outfit lens and people would pick it up. But as just for a body cap, it might not sell as much.

I had metal body caps for my FD cameras. I'd like to find metal caps for my EF cameras.

So that won't actually be an Integrated chip then?
Useful for logging exposures?
Branching out into accessories?
Truthfully, I don't think it's all that much sillier than some of the things which actually reach the marketplace as so-called serious products. At least it looks nice.
Yes, I grinned at your efforts - but shan't be emulating them.

Safe to assume then, you're not pining for one.
