All top notch Mike. 96 pieces, wow, that is something with so small a glue-up. They all look wonderful, though I do like the wood ones the best, but the acrylics are great too.

Beautiful pens….. all of them. I wish I knew how you guys glue up the little bitty pieces. My eyeballs and fingers can’t go that small.

I am always tempted to pick up those segmented kits When I go into into woodcraft. Did you turn them with chisels, or just sand paper? I have seen people do both.

Joe,

I use my gouges and skew for turning the pens. Just take light cuts so that you don’t get a catch and tear out the segments. I use sand paper at the end for prep for finish. You should give it a try.

Thanks.
