“The segmented blankwas one that had been received for participating in a previous 13 and UnderContest.. He chose the Majestic Squire kit to use with the blank. He sanded the blank to 400 and then applied acoat of Yorkshire Grit and 4 coats of Hampshire Sheen.

My Grandson did all ofthe work on this pen. My involvement was to give him direction andoccasionally demonstrate a cut.” (quote from Grandfather)

Pen #2


From and 8 yo lady and her new pen.

“I picked the pen andcolor out of his pen catalog, and my Dad ordered it for me.

I cut the magenta icewith a saw to fit the pen. My Dad put it in the drill and I pulled thehandle to make a hole and then mixed glue and then put the glue on the goldtube and put them together.



We waited until the nextday, and then I used the sander machine to make sure the ends were flat.

My Dad helped me put inon the lathe and I made it round and smooth. This is fun because it makesa mess.


My Dad attached a cutterthat put the flat spots and twist on the body. I wanted a twist becauseit's a twist pen.



I sanded and sanded andsanded until all the marks were gone. Then my Dad sanded some more andshowed me how to make it shine.
We used some white stufffrom a bottle to give it a super shine. It's so shiny.

My Dad showed me how toput the parts together and make the pen work. I twisted the screw andmade sure there were no spaces.

And then I testedit! It works, I showed my Mom and she loves it, I think she is jealous,so I told her I would make her one too but in purple or blue because they areher favorite colors.”

Pen #6


From a gentleman of 12....Granddad's comments.

This is a Shock Absorber kit that mygrandson has had since participating in the 13 and Under contest a couple ofyears ago. He chose to pair it with a piece of Bocote from Pop'sstash. After sanding, one coat of Yorkshire Grit and four coats ofHampshire Sheen were applied.
He did all of the work on this penwith the exception of one band saw cut that would have put his fingers a littlecloser to the blade than I was comfortable with.

Pen #7
From a young man of 10 yo (Dad’s comments)

My 10 year old son and I spent mostof a day in the shop making this pen. It is a Sierra kit with a segmentedblank that we constructed out of pieces of "Lava Lamp" blanks. He came up with the design, and helped to glue the blank together. I cutthe pieces on the bandsaw. He did the drilling (with guidance), and thenturned the blank. He then sanded the pen up to 12000 grit, and finishedit with a bit of plastic polish. We almost didn't make it; as he wasturning the pen, he a had a catch and broke three pieces off the tube. Wewere able to find the pieces and glue them back together and finish thepen. Such is life when segmenting! This was a very enjoyableexperience for me, as we got to spend a good bit of time together in the shop;there was a lot of laughter, barking spiders, gluing of fingers, and I kepthearing "this is fun" over and over.
