Here are a couple of pens I did while goofing around and/or experimenting a bit. The Euro pen is Wenge and Yellow Heart the Atlas Pen is a segmentation of Maple, Purple Heart, Walnut and Yellow Heart. The next picture is a Euro Satin and Atlas corncob… then there is a Platinum Atlas.

I like the look of that atlas. I’m looking to get into some more of the segmented stuff myself.
