Default A valentines gift of segments.

Here is a photo diary of how my valentines gift and entry to the itermediate contest was made.

All materials and cuts were made using my vintage mitresaw.

Time to get cutting with the 1st series of celtic knots.Swap the woods back and forth with an inlay inbetween.Do this 4 times.

Now determine what kit you are using and locate where the end of one of the barrels will be and repeat the previous process.

If you haven't glued yourself to the blank by this point,kudos.

Finish that side now.

Locate the opposite end of the other tube and repeat the process again.

Cut the blanks allowing room for a tenon for this particular kit.

Drill,glue,and take the corners off.Then clean up the tubes and do some preliminary squaring.I do my finla squaring up while on the lathe.I turn between centers.

Turn and sand the barrels to 320 grit lengthwise.

Removed the barrels to admire my handywork,only to find out my math sucks.Oh well no stopping now.

Now appl a CA finish to all the parts and wet sand them through 2500 grit wet/dry.

Buff with plastic buffing compound,assemble and show them off.

nice work and demo. I always enjoy seeing the process people use to make a pen. Heck I even learned a little something in this one.

Congrats on the win! It's always great to read through a persons story of how their work came to be. The final product is awesome to say the least! The two side by side is very cool indeed.
