Default My 1000 Segment Pen Blank

Hey guys, I have been making YouTube videos about pen making for over a year now and i made a video when a past 500 subscribers with a pen containing 500 segments and said I would make a pen with 1000 segments in if I got to 1000 subscribers.

Well that video has had over 500'000 views and I am now over 8000 subscriber so it was about time I made it!

Its made with a couple of sheets of veneer and some maple burl and has been one of the trickiest and enjoyable things I've done for a long time.

Here's a link to my video, I hope you like it!

Sorry I haven't uploaded any pictures, trying to work out why they are so small, 10k segmented something will be sometime when I get there! I'm doing 2k next, then probably 5k
