Here is my segmented pen contest entry. This was a fun little pen to put together. It is actually the first time I have used this kit. This wasn’t the intital idea but after an audible this is where it ended up. I wasn’t sure how two sides where going to look turned and was pleasantly surprised by the ovals.

For those you you that voted for me in the first round, thank you. It was greatly appreciated. I look forward to the the next contest. I need to start thinking of some ideas.

Comments, questions, and criticisms are always welcome.

@Angela S

Thanks for this thread, Angela !! . Oftentimes after the BASH contest, the discussion of entries just cuts off, "never" to be raised again.

But with BASH pens there are often features and methods that are very worthy of further discussion, as is the case with your pen.

So thank you again for starting this thread to give opportunity for such discussion.

Very nice entry. I am sure you learned alot from your adventure making this blank. I am sure you also realize there are things you can do to tighten up your work. I will bring a couple out being you asked for critique. As you see every cut that is mated against another needs to be dead flat and the mating surfaces need to be sharp. The matching of your chevrons is very good and it helps to do this from the same piece all the time. Your concept is a good one and works well. But as I said the one area is the flat mating surfaces need to tighten up. But overall very good and you got an experience going against your peers in a contest which is always cool to be able to judge how far you have come. Good luck next time and continue to do segmenting work. It is rewarding.
