    First Segmented Pen

    Trying to step up my pen making and decided to try my hand at segmenting. Kit is a Round Top Euro from Rockler. Wood is Bocote and Cherry with aluminum. Nothing too fancy but I learned a lot in the process.

    Very nice Tom, the aluminum really sets it off.

    Fun. The aluminium bands give it an interesting look and go well with the bocote.

    how was the aluminium to turn in thin bands like that?

    The aluminum turned very nice. Not much different than the wood itself. Very smooth.

    Nice pen Tom, I like the combination you put together. Well executed.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.
