One of my most adventurous laminations one I'm quite pleased with. The CA finish leaves a bit to be desired and I wish I had used friction polish. But with fingers covered in CA glue from Laminating, I just carried on.
By the standards I view on the IAP site I realise this is very much beginners standard but I will continue to try.
Please comment always appreciated.

You did well with your pen, Michael, as there is not a lot of timber to play with when segmenting a Sierra.

Alan thank you compared to many I see a little basic. But glad you like it. For me it's such a messy process but I will continue to try never going to catch you guys up though.

You did well with what you are attempting. If you give some explanation of how you constructed the blank we can offer better suggestions. I have typically preferred patterns that are the same from all angles, but this requires to build it from the OD to the ID, and also is not the best for Celtic Knots.

Mark thanks for your comments. The build was simple.but so messy.
I had some square black and white stringing which I glued together using 8 strips.
Cut the blank and glued in the assembly.
Your photos are brilliant and your assembly is far more complicated well done.

Michael you are doing a fine job. They get easier the more you do. Also you will figure out the little tricks that will make things easier. Nice design.

Nicely Done Michael. Keep experimenting, some of the greatest innovations happen by accident or when things take a different turn than what you expected. I really like what you are doing.

Hi Michael, now I/we have a better understanding of the construction. When doing layered stacking (e.g. your 8 strips), I have found that it looks better NOT to try a visual from all sides, but to go for a front and back visual, with sacrificial but still appealing sides. So basically, keep your middle stack close to the tube OD, and have a side piece to enclose it. (Yea, photos are better than words at this point).

For this pen below (yes, two different blanks, but you'll get the thought), it looks very complicated, but there were only 9 segments, plus 2 black veneers. Deceivingly easy after a few trials. Plus, the design is visible on the front and back, but not on the sides. To me, having the sides look good (even when simple) is nice.

Thanks for that makes it much easier to understand. I will persevere.
