Good looking pens. Got some scraps that are calling me to put together as a segment blank. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

Can any of the segmenting gurus lead me in the way to avoid "bleed over"? In some places (maybe end grain?) the bubinga is contaminating the maple. I'm pretty sure that it's happening during the sanding process. Any way to fix that?

I think if you put a coat or two of thin CA on before you start sanding it will help.

Some folks will tell you that the secret is to learn to use a skew chisel so skillfully that you get a very smooth surface and you don't have to sand at all.

A harder form of maple will be less prone to absorbing the neighbouring colored dust.

A harder form of colored wood might also help ... I am thinking of an Australian burl like brown or red mallee or concinna burl. Those eucalyptus woods are harder than bubinga.

The less sanding you do the better the result, but I know that is a hard goal to set.

If you can blow a stream of compressed air on your blank when you are turning and sanding that helps a lot.
