This pen is a first for me. It is a segmented Holly and Gabon blackwood blank put on a Roman Harvest rollerball kit. It was sanded and finished with 8 coats of med CA. As always any comments or questions are always welcomed. Thanks for looking.

Very nice pen. It makes me want to try a segmented one now. Just a lot of little pieces to glue up though.

how did you apply and sand your coats of ca for the finish? I bought the thin set and have been two different things, put it on on the lathe and the other is put about 4-5 coats on then sand with the micro and treat it as an acrylic. looks great!!!!

That is how I do mine. I do it on the lathe. I use med CA for I fell it gives a thicker coat. Sand and polish as needed.

This is excellent work! A very well executed design.

How were you able to slice those rings off so neatly?

I have looked at both pens and can’t decide which one I like the best but I really like the design on them. Well Done.
