Hi Ron. I was actually visiting Chuck yesterday!

The inlay for this pen was actually easy to assemble, and I will be able to make it thinner.

I cut the 1/8" pieces on the Byrnes Table saw. (But I cut my Chevrons on my Craftsman Table saw, with a 45 degree sled).

Pictures are out of order, but you get the idea.

Beautiful! I'm not sure that I think the long, wide maple strip needs to be narrower? You might make yourself happier by breaking it up with a narrow strip down the center. The balance might set your mind at ease! Lovely blank and application to a pen, Mark.

I want the actual inlay to be thinner. This one was about .225" (slightly less that 1/4"). So all dimensions need to be on a diet. I suspect .20" for the final dimension will be more appealing (to me ). With the thickness sander, this I can do.

And yes, there are many different color/thickness/veneer variations possible. This is glued up waiting for when I have a the time (we all need more time...):

Thank you Bob. I have about 16 more variations sketched out (in pencil...).
These are fun, and surprisingly easy after you "Just start".

Mark, here is an interesting segmented pen design. How would you get that design to be 360 degrees ?It has some similarity to your work.

That is a beautiful job! I'll have to ponder that as my quick answers are flawed!

Maybe rings, maybe triangles,... Hmnnn...

Hope all is well!

Mark

How about this: I envy ( and appreciate) Ray's precision

Excellent work, Mark. You'll have to come back to Waxhaw to show how you did it.
