Another learning adventure! I decided to try my hand at making a segmented pen this time. Again, joining is THE key to success! As will all woods there is always a surprise waiting for you inside and this turning didn’t disappointment me. The picture does not show the burst of light emitted by the wood well! There is a distinct glow coming out of opposite sides of this pen, even with low light you can see the glow, pretty cool!!!!

Well done,
I have done a lot of segementing…It is difficult to keep the segments purpendicular and straight…it looks like you have done a great job. I also like your selection of wood types. Segementing takes a normal kit and puts it up a step!

Nice pen Kelly. An Atlas kit I believe. The glow you are seeing is from the end-grain on the two opposite sides of the pen. It creates a chatoyance as you spin the pen around. Spindle turnings don’t have this because you don’t particularly see the end grain.
