How about an app from the app-store?
Authored by: dat5h on Jun 28, '11 10:11:51PM

I strongly recommend you check out "DTerm" from the app-store. I was looking for a way to open a terminal window from the Finder and tried making this kind of AppleScript once before myself. I also checked out some old Leopard app that sits in the finder window and you click it, but these only did what your AppleScript does (open the folder in the Terminal). DTerm will let you open up the folder, but also lets you just run shell scripts from the Finder and then go about your business without necessarily opening up the terminal if you don't need it for too many operations. Check it out

Sweet! I just checked out this app and it looks awesome! It provides a nice little on demand window for those times I just need a quick Terminal to run one or two small commands, and if I'm using it and I decide I need a full Terminal window, it will open one in the blink of an eye!
