Here' a design I made for single barrel pens. Now I need to figure out a name for the design. Anyone got any good ideas?

Aero pen, black wood, aluminum segments, BLO/CA finish.

Comments are welcome...THX

I didn't see a tutorial on this type of segmenting. Would folks like to see a tutorial on this type of segmenting? Let me know if there already is a tutorial for using aluminum for curved lines!

Sure thanks a lot something else I have to figure out how it was done. Not that I'll likely be able to do one but fun to try and figure out how the cuts were made. Very nice looking pen. Ok I think I figured it out with better tooling than what I have it might be possible.:rolleyes: Wife has this addiction to food though so better tools likely won't happen any time soon.:frown:

Beautiful work and nicely done! Makes me want to try it- after I catch up on a dozen projects that I am behind on!

Very nice pattern. Very inventive. Not sure about the kit. Love to see that in a closed end style where it's all "pattern".

Hey David,

Great detail on that pen, almost looks like it was mechanically made, so precise. What size blades do you use to get such a tight fit? I have been using copper roof flashing and using a big thick blade to try and keep things tight, but I can't even come close to you precision. Also what are you using for the aluminum, what gauge?

Again, great work.

Awesome job David! Definitely inspiring me to try one. I bought some aluminum, just keep getting sidetracked. This may change my priorities!

tutorial please!!

I have only been making pens about 3 months and just mastered my first celtic knot. Have been doing other inlays also. I am assuming this is something similar to how you do the celtic knot but I would love a tutorial. :)

It is very beautiful... how did you make the pattern?

I'd like to try something like that...
