Default C知on, c知on and do the locomotion

The loser locomotion, that is. Here are mine:

The segmented pen made it to the second round and I was really grateful for that. I致e been experimenting with using my router to segment blanks and, in this pen, I put some bocote strips into opposing sides of a Birdseye maple blank. Tried 60 degree scallops at one end with aluminum, Paduak and a mystery wood I had bought at Woodcraft (might be purple heart but I知 not positive). I used epoxy so it took a week or so to get the blank ready. Used a CA finish, which I知 allergic to, so I have to apply that in small doses over 2-3 days while wearing a respirator to avoid an unpleasant reaction.

The Koa pen was my entry in the Pretty Wood contest and was my experiment with non-CA finishes. I settled upon using Mylands sanding sealer with the Mylands friction polish and was pretty pleased with the result tho the photo might suggest otherwise. I made it for a special person and decided to enter it when I wasn稚 sure the segmented blank was gonna work out.

Thanks for looking, voting and commenting. This was a fun learning experience with so many inspiring entries in every category!
