Default segmented attempt

I decided to try some modest Gisi style segmenting. It gave me an appreciation as to why people charge a little more for the blanks. There were a few woeful moments in the process when a piece of the blank blew out. But with a little persistence it managed to come back together. Overall fairly happy for my first go at it.

Pictures of my Jigs. I made a jig so that I could get everything squared and angled. It has a 30 degree and a 90 degree guide. The board on the bottom side fits really snug on the bed of our Jet lathe bed. I got a face plate with really great tolerances for sanding and it seems to be working.

Ed it is an elegant sierra.

Excellent pen and an impressive jig. I'm always amused when folks get all antsy with their jigs - often simplier is better.

Well done.
