The IAP is having it’s annual birthday bash and the first week’s contest was a segmented slimline which required using all the parts and with “shape”—meaning the pen couldn’t be turned bushing to bushing.
This was my submission.
Curly maple with black walnut and bloodwood for the lower barrel and black walnut with curly maple for the upper barrel.
All comments and criticisms welcome.

Cheers,
