Here is another segmented walnut and cherry with aluminum. This is the second one I've done the first was on a classic vintage kit. I've done cabinetry work and they say that a what separates a good carpenter from a average carpenter is the ability to fix your mistakes or disguise them. Well the same may be true for pen turners not that I'm saying I'm a good pen turner, but the center band on the lower barrel is a fix for the catch that I got from the aluminum flashing. I added the spalted piece after taking the skew to part off the catch and then after that the spalted piece was turned a piece of it came off, so I had to part it off and add another piece of walnut. So it took some fixin to complete the pen, but I like how it turned out.
