Great job, Mark !!!

When you say "thinner inlay" would be better, I believe you are referring to the circumferential width of the light colored full-length strip of wood.

So you would be making the segmented strips wider ?

That would be moving towards the suggestion that Sam made which is to make all strips of a width equal to 1/8 the circumference.

I don't know about making all strips 1/8 ... trying that is the only way to find out.

But I agree with the direction you are headed. !

You probably need to mail that pen to me for closer inspection.

I like both ideas of making the inlay thinner, and the one about equal alternating segments all the way around.

Great work, I look forward to the next few versions.

I like it. I would like to see a picture rotated about an eighth of a turn to see the inlay strip between the lighter full length strips.

I have been able to get the 1/8 dimension approximately; and while it's fine, I prefer thinner inlays.

Thanks Bob, Nancy disagrees and thinks I need to lose some weight . She tries to feed me Kale and Quinua. Guess she thinks I'm a Llama...

With this exact inlay, if I use a smaller OD kit, the maple sections will be thinner, but not the inlay. To get the inlay thinner, it has to be constructed thinner - which I can/will do next time.

These are easier than Chevrons, so all is good.

Funny, "Wifey" was looking at the pen, and this AM I can't seem to find it...

Thank you.

You know I'm a fan too. I always like the intricacy of your segmenting but I'm equally impressed with your attention to detail afterwards.... Making sure that the pattern always sits central to the finished barrel and ensuring that the tube hole is drilled perfectly straight is something that many others trip up on. well done Mark.

Thank you! I have a bucket-load of unturned segmented blanks that are constructed poorly. The blanks with these inlays I find easier to get aligned; but the Chevrons are still pretty fussy.

I appreciate the comments.

Mark, I am sure you have probably shared somewhere but what saw do you use for the intricate cuts?
Thanks
Ron
