Used 1 walnut and 1 oak pen blank.
Numbered the larger segments and glued in the exact order as cut with grain matching same direction. The thinner segments cut from the “waste” pieces. They were not numbered but glued in with grain matching as they were cut.
This is a Black Chrome Cigar Pen.
I made the upper body a tad bit thicker than I wanted and turned just a little under as well as the upper part of the lower body.
I really liked the way the wood looks in this fashion. I had actually happened upon this by accident making another pen where I had 4 out of the 5 pieces glued in the same matching grain direction without thinking about it.
CA finish applied for glossy look.
