So a few weeks ago I took a course on building segmented pens at my local Woodcraft. The class was very good and we came away with 4 different types; Celtic Knot, Spiderweb, Spiral Staircase, and a small piece of a Herringbone (which I am not sure I will be doing again) The Celtic knot is really the only one that was a complete blank and I decided to give it a try this morning before I started in on the other pens I am planning to turn this afternoon and through the weekend. Unfortunately it did not make it…
I was warned by the instructor that segmented pens can be an issue when turning, so I was not entirely surprised. I am looking forward to putting knowledge i got for the class to work to and make a few more of these on my own. Hopefully the next ones will come out a bit better.
