Title IAP Collection Pen #7
Description Noveau Sceptre Segmented by Chris Hendrick
Date Added to Collection July 25, 2014
Maker Chris Hendrick
Materials Blue-dyed Buckeye Burl, White Corian, Segmented with Brass Sheets, quarter inch and eighth inch diameter mosaic knife handle inserts.
Components Broadwell Nouveau Sceptre Rhodium & 22 Kt Gold Rollerball
Tools / Machinery Used Harbor Freight 10” x 18” wood lathe. Custom made carbide tools made by myself for drilling and turning the pen.
Process Buckeye blanks and corian were cut to length and assembled with brass sheets between. Once dry, the upper barrel was mounted in a drill press to accept the mosaic insert pin. Once glued in, the blanks were taken to the lathe. Every few passes the carbide cutter was rotated to expose a fresh cutter. The turning of the upper barrel was done over the course of a few days. You can’t rush the turning of a barrel like this or it will explode. Once turned down to size, they were sanded 320 - 12000 MM pads. Then they were polished with a rubbing compound and a polishing compound. Finally, both were buffed with Tripoli, White Diamond and Carnuba Wax.
Maker's Comments This was definitely a fun project and taught me patience! I did have the first blank explode, so I may have slowed down to an unnecessary level but in this situation, being overly cautious was the smart move.
