    How do you count segments?

    I state that these pens have 142 segments. But I had a gentleman contact me and state that it's really only 77. His reasoning was that I shouldn't count the ones that I've cut in half. What do you guys think? How many segments would you say this pen has...

    Segmented ???

    I'm not sure if this is a segmented pen or not. Someone help me out here. I was not crazy about it at first but the more I look at it the more I like it. I purchased the blank from the local Woodcraft store and sandwiched two layers of maple veneer back to back in an arc across the length. I am...

    Hi - I'm Dan. I've lived around the U.S., and several places around the world, but have called North Carolina "home" for 20+ years. I'm new to pen making, but not the lathe or woodworking in general. I tend to make "cool" stuff rather than furniture or otherwise useful household items. I...

    Zebra Wood & Walnut Segmented

    Not the best photo, but making the pen was interesting. Zebra Wood and Walnut with Aluminum segments. It worked out well but I'm wondering what is the best way to glue Al to wood?? I just used a medium CA glue - is there a better option? Thanks and comments always appreciated!

    First Celtic knot

    Here is a picture of the good side of the first Celtic knot I have done. the other side is off slightly but I learned that I need to make sure everything is lined up when doing the glue up each time. I also learned that it is very important to have the blank square and the ends of the blank...

    First segmented pen finished!

    It took to tries but I got it done. I ended up using the white gorilla glue and the blank held together quite well. I am happy with it for it being my first one. I want to try adding metal in between the segments next time. Any tips on that would be much appreciated!

    My first segmented pens

    I think I am hooked. These Longwood pens are my first attempt at segmented pens. What an engaging activity. I hope that I will be able to go back to non-segmented pens after this. Which one is your favourite? I can't decide. These are both Tulipwood Blanks with Purpleheart feature...

    Hello, I have a quick question that I have not yet been able to find an answer for. I have recently started making segmented pen blanks. Several of them have a segmented pieces of acrylic blanks. My question is if there are any issues with applying a lacquer finish over a mostly wood pen blank...
