I’m really enjoying working on segmented pens lately. They provide that something extra that really makes the pen stand out.
I’ve finished two of these lately one with oak and wengé used in a straight and one which started life as an olive wood blank and was cut at a 45° miter for some accent segments.
the hardest part about this is selecting the wood species with regards to grain density. For instance the oak has a pretty coarse grain and the wengé a very fine grain.
