Terry welcome to the world of segmenting. very nice pen idea and it is a start. You have learned some valuable lessons. Sometimes it just better to try on your won and learn as you go. You can now visualize what can go wrong. The next one you make will be better. A pattern like that really does better if you can build on the tube because you can line things up better and not have to worry about spinning out of alignment. I like to use epoxy when gluing pen blanks of any kind. I also like to use my skew to turn them. I skip the sanding part if I am using woods that can contaminate one another. I go right from tools to finish. When you get proficient with the skew you will find it to be the best tool in the arsenal.

As said good job and keep at it.
