Default Another Simple Segmented pen

The back has been feeling better these past few days so I decided to get back in the shop and completed one of my projects I had on the work bench. I will add this to my series of black and aluminum pens. Have shown those here before.

This pen is a Sierra Vista chrome kit with black acrylic and aluminum knot. Spun and polished to a nice shine. Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are always welcomed.

Will be working on a few more designs for this series.

Very very neat, I like the chunky aluminium. How did you stop the drill wandering when it hits the metal?

'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!!!

Derek, if the blank is made accurately like John has done, then the four pieces of aluminium form a funnel that keeps the drill centered as the drill contacts all 4 at the same time.

I see, thank you. Going to try that. Should be fun. I've done similar in wood, but thought that a decent thickness of aluminium might be a problem.
