after the original cap blew out on me as I attempted to finish it, I went ahead and made this solid ebony cap. I’m not sure exactly what the problem is, but I really don’t care for the end result.

I’ll have to keep this one in the private collection to remind myself that I still have a lot to learn.

Still looks good though… take a step back and give it a couple days. You may just warm up to it.

Looks good – call it a learning experience and use it to pay bills with :-))

It sure could look worse. You need a few of your own anyway.

it looks great… leave it for a couple days and when you come back to it maybe the “dislike” will jump right out at you

Ok that will work too. :)

If I can accomplish segmented pens like you’ve been doing maybe I’ll try that one idea I was talking about. :)

of course you can complete a segmented pen like this LarryDNJR!
A segmented pen is time consuming, not hard!
