    Not so hypersegmented ultra-cigar

    Mostly maple burl. The burl had a hole in it which I filled with gold sprinkles. African Blackwood and maple stripes. Rhino plastic Earth's Core accents.

    I have been wanting to get into segmenting but quickly realized you need a good table saw sled to do that. So I searched for as many ideas as I could and have come up with a basic design that will accomodate 0° vertical cuts for trimming blank width, 90° horizontal cuts for cutting blanks to...

    Segmenting- sort of

    I got this blank at the Georgia symposium in September. I drilled and installed tubes in blanks for Slim Line pens. When I got ready to put them on the pen mill, I saw that the end of one of the blanks had a rough finish with a pocket of nothingness. Should have inspected it and trimmed it...

    Hi! I'm thinking about buying a table saw for cutting up blanks for segmenting. I'm on a budget because I also need a new lathe and a grinder/jigs/chisels xD I'd buy used but I live on an island and there's not much available here, and not much hope of getting a used cabinet style table saw from...

    Band Saw Segmenting Sled

    I finally had to come up with a solid means of making segments especially Celtic knots. It serves the purpose and is very adjustable for various sized blanks. This version will only do 45 Degree cuts; however, I'm working on an adjustable version with the same locking methodology that could come...

    Segmenting Sled video

    I made a segmenting sled that has served me very well for cutting thick and thin pieces for segmenting as well as angled cuts. You can see the build here; Part 1 and how it is used here Part 2

    Best tool for cutting tiny pen blank segments

    I apologize if this question has been asked a million times before, but I am looking for opinions on the best tool to use for cutting small segments. Right now, I have an entry-level Skil table saw that I've been using to cut segments, and it is problematic for a couple of reasons. 1.) The...

    Any Pittsburgh Pirates fans in here?

    I finished up this prototype today. This one fought me every single step of the way, and I'm still not COMPLETELY happy with how it came out. But - for my first attempt at it, I am decently pleased. I enjoyed the challenge, and am excited to see how the next one turns out. p.s. For any...

    Segmenting software?

    Folks, I have some ideas on some things I would like to see in a pen, but would like to mock it up first as not to waste time and materials. I see that there are a few segmenting software packages out there, but they are more for turning bowls and such. Is there one that is designed...

    Looking for a good reco on a Bandsaw

    So I'm in the market for a good bandsaw. I dare to say I have a "shop", it's more of half of a garage where I pretend to make pens. I don't have a lot of room and would love to get a table top bandsaw like the rikon...

    CNC for custom blanks?

    Does anyone have this CNC? It looks like it has a lot of potential to use to make custom patterns in blanks, and a great price for a CNC..... -Dude

    Amboyna/Malachite Segmented Jr. Statesman

    Sorry for the crappy photography. I just thought I'd show you guys what I've been up to lately. I knocked this out in about three hours... I took a long wedge of malachite truestone and CA'd each side of it with some black plastic sheeting I bought at a modeling shop (used in building...

    Inspired by Gisi and Kaspar

    A while back I saw a thread by Kaspar (now closed) that said the pen he made was homage to Gisi, which I didn't understand until I googled Mark Gisi and found his web site and saw the complexity and precision of his pen making. Some viewers of that thread stated they thought Gisi's work is too...
