'Another simple segmented pen'?? Yeah right !!!

JT, As you well know, there is a lot of effort and skill in making something look simple!!
Starting with a perfectly squared or perhaps perfectly round blank, selecting the best angle for the cut, matching the material with the kerf, re-squaring the blank (or rounding ), cutting the black to get the cross centered, drilling the blank accurately down the middle and without generating too much heat to wreck the glue and then turning it down to virtually B2B pucker zone so it doesn't look like a pregnant salami, .............simple??? Hardly!!!

You still got it old man!!!
