Default First "Real" Segmented

I've done a few Celtic knots, but had never built up a blank from pieces. Had an alumite scrap from another pen (Racer3770 cast the blank), too short to use for anything else. Brass bands cut from a small sheet and the ends are Makore. Other than patience for the epoxy to dry, the rest actually went better than I expected. Spent the weekend working on my skew skills--definitely helped on this turning.

That is my favorite segment design - using brass rings to separate segments.

Fantastic - the brass does its job well "separating yet tying together." Great pen.
