Default Sierra nomad (first time turning with aluminum inlay

Here's my first attempt with using aluminum in a segment. It definitely makes a difference turning, especially when you just your carbide bit.

Anyway. Purple heart and aluminum caps on a cherry burl with CA finish on a Sierra monad set of hardware

Please crtic

Looks like you've nailed it there. The light play across the wood to metal joins is very very smooth and even and I can see no metal contamination in the grain from sanding. Brilliant job. Not keen on the kit though but that's personal choice.

I think it looks quite sharp and may try that kit, also.

Great proportion on the segments. Looks great!

I usually use brass in that configuration, but the aluminum looks great with that pen. It does take a little adjustment when turning metal with wood. Congratulation.

Well done. That is one of my favorite design features. I need to be mindful not to have too much pressure when the gouge comes off of the aluminum and dig a deeper spot in the wood.

Thanks for sharing.

Mark,

Glad you mentioned that because it's a challenge for sure and I definitely did some extra unwanted diggung

Nice pen !! . I like the color combination and the aluminum fits right in.

Don't like the kit, though, but that is no reflection on your beautiful work.

Jeremy, do you use a gouge also? I don't use a gouge but rather my own made up scraper. Kind of like a straight scraper but with a slight angle. It lets me hold the handle at an angle and be straight across on the blank.

The scraper keeps from "gouging" out sections and makes everything even.
