Default New Segmented Inlay Maker from Nixa, MO

Hi, everyone! My father and I have been in the woodworking business for years, and we thought we would try out pens. We've been making pens for about a month now, and we have learned a lot. We are still looking to learn more, which is why we joined this forum. I've attached some pictures of the first segmented inlay pens we made. The barrels have 142 pieces, and the pattern was specifically designed to fit this pen kit. Each piece is measured down to the ten-thousandths of an inch, because if we don't it throws the pattern off as you stack them. The next pens we are working on will be more complicated and closed end fountain pens. These were more a proof of concept. I would love to find more people on here that do segmented turning in pens, and learn more about making the different pen parts ourselves. I've also uploaded a duck call that my father made in 2007 to show where we came from.

You can see our site here to learn more:
I post a lot on our Facebook page here:

Love the work. I am a huge fan of segmenting. I have been working on a diamond pattern for quite some time. At least I was before some medical issues came up and other life issues. You have inspired me to dig those back out and give a run at them again when I get back into the shop, hopefully real soon.

Forgot to mention WELCOME to the site and I do hope you do stick around and join in the fun here.

Welcome to IAP. Beautiful segments! I am going to drop in on you the next time I'm in Ozark visiting my daughter.

Will you and your father be at the Ozark Crafts Fair at the end of September? I will be there as a visitor, not doing displays or sales. Would love to see your work there!
