I have been interested in this challenge since it was first posed.

One thing I don't get about the idea ....

.... does the octagonal pattern shown represent a cross-section through the pen blank ? . (ie. do the colored portions run lengthwise down the full length of the pen ?)

or ....

.... does the octagonal pattern wrap circumferentially around the cylindrical shape of the pen blank ?

My description was for the octagons to be side by side with wedges to fill between. When turned looking directly at the octagon you see the logo. If you look at it rotated ninety degrees you wouldn't see the octagons. If drilled lengthwise through the square all you would see would be stripes of wood with no pattern.

Yeah ... I think I understand your suggestion, Pete ...

... but have a read of this ... "all four colors going around the pen" ... ?????

... and this ... "Something like this might connect to the logo." ... ?????

Quote:
Mark -- One thought I had was something like the drawing I threw together below, showing two views with a 45 degree rotation between them. Something like this (with all four colors going around the pen, but maintaining a geometric flair to it) might connect to the logo. Don't know what this looks like when it gets rounded by turning.

Curly -- I'm afraid I'm going to have to think pretty hard to visualize what you're describing (the fault lies with my lack of visual imagination, not your description!). But I get the boat hulls starting point.
Pete, with your technique as I understand it, you are going to end up with multiple logos adjacent along the length of the pen, and the color pattern will rotate from one to the next.

Initially, there will be Seven two-foot long strips of wood with different colors and different cross-sectional shapes: One square, Two triangular, and 4 Pentagonal. . Getting these all sized properly and glued together accurately is going to be really tricky. . Plus you have to worry about the cross-sectional dimensions of each strip in relation to the final turned pen diameter, and that diameter will have to be uniform along the length of the pen (not tapered towards the ends).

It is not clear that Rob wants this sort of pattern, or just a single octagon on one side (or perhaps two sides, running through), or even something different (which might require some very skillful marquetry ).

Visualization is getting a bit too complex for me and I think I will drop out now ....

But it would be interesting to hear from Rob again on exactly what he has in mind.

I'll have to slowly review all the suggestions... My head hurts

But, I like the input to work out a challenge! This is fun!

Well I did state at the beginning that a decal would be easier.

I'm bad with names but the relatively new guy making all those neat laser cut blanks would have the easiest time making something for this.

Mal the process is similar to making patterned edge banding for furniture. It can all be done be done on a good tablesaw.

Hopefully the comments got included. I am putting a finish on a blank from Ken Wines (Blank) - (I'll be gone for two weeks in the AM.) He does wonderful work - I like segmenting, and I could care less how he makes them - they are beautiful. This blank will have special meaning to me as it was the last one with "My Shop buddy" supervising..., and it has a very appropriate design - Maple, for me; Walnut for "my buddy."

Yes it will! I use wipe on Poly, so it take 4-5 days. I have the blanks turned, with 2 coats on, but will be gone for 2 weeks. It is a special pen to me as "My buddy" was there to watch. (I had to put her down the next AM due to cancer... Sigh...). So this is a nice pen for me and the design of the blank from Ken is perfect!

I'll post the finished pen in about 3 weeks. Hey guys/gals - hug your pets!!! They simply love you.

Mark, I'm so sorry to hear about your "Shop Buddy". I've personally been through that more times than I care to remember. I try to stay focused on the "good times" memories with my friends. The intertwining of the weave in that blank is very symbolic, of how you and your buddie's lives affected each other. I wish you the best, my friend, and my heart goes out to you during times like this. Ken Wines

If it is just a simple logo you are after that is projected onto 90 degrees of the circumference of the the pen body, then this is what it would look like. I've included an isometric view as well as a side view.
