I like this pen a lot!Creating this pen was a new challenge for me. I had no idea what the finished product was going to look like when I started the design. I was really impressed, as I started to remove wood from the square blank I started with to see this pattern emerge.

abie The glue up is important, that is a start. Cutting your pattern in the smaller pen blanks gets busy very quickly. Sometimes despite your best efforts you have a sliver that blows out, usually on the very tips. I like this pen, have made handles for my files using same method. Great job MasterSergeant, you selling these or are they gifts? I bet this one gets some looks.

No problem Abie. This all started when a friend (we’ve never met personally just via our Flickr.com accounts) living in N. Ireland got his first lathe. His main hope was to be able to turn a segmented something with a lathe. He got me thinking about having a go at turning segmented as well. We both are tight fisted with our money so we brag about how little this or that costs. I started using downed limbs I find around town and that where this all started. The walnut was a wild growth along a fence line I cleared out and the maple was from a limb downed during our winter blizzard. I cleaned them up and started practicing and this project was my most advanced attempted at segmented turning.

Kova thanks for very kind remarks! I’ll keep practicing and posting you keep telling me how I am doing ;-P

Like the pattern, looks like swirls of chocolate. You are doing great on segmenting pens. Great job!
