Default A new inlay

One of the benefits of driving 2,500 miles and turning the phone on vibrate and the radio off... Nothing to do but think, ponder, imagine... I came up with a few ideas.

This is a new inlay design. It is a bit "clunky" for my tastes - too thick, but I can fix that! It fits for my .20" inlay objective, but this design will be better suited (IMO) with a thinner inlay on all 4 sides (.175" x .175" ??).
I have 4 more design modifications on this type of platform gluing up.

Please - all comments, suggestions, critique is beneficial... I will post all procedures on how I did this, so let's tweak it together!

Nope! - Those are some very nice pens!!! Out of my league - I Know. I'm just trying to have fun!

My simple glue-ups are keeping me busy and they are fun. A very nice source of "stress-reduction."

Life is busy, a fun hobby is a priceless, and well appreciated endeavor. All debts are paid! I am in debt to IAP and my friends within!

I think it might look better a little thinner but I have a little trouble visualizing things. I think it looks pretty awesome the way it is.

Yes, it will look better thinner! I suspect from the current .20" square to .175" will make a difference; if not we will go from there!

I guess I like clunky. I'd suggest even more clunky and make the width of the segmented strips each 1/8 of the circumference. Either way you go next, very nice work!

I think it is too thin. Needs to be fatter. Great job.
