Segmented Fountain Pen

One of my wife’s friends asked me if I would make a pen for her to give to her husband for his birthday. I took the opportunity of “no restrictions” to work with the Jr Gent II kit from Craft Supplies USA. I really like the look of this kit (it’s the black titanium finish)

there are 234 +/- pieces of maple, walnut and jatoba used in this pen and I’ve been working on it for the past few days (after work, well into the night!)

I’m pretty happy with the results.
Thanks for looking!

Bowl Practice

I turned a new bowl the other night. I'm looking to practice a little. I'd like to create a segmented bowl soon and thought it might be a good idea to practice on a solid piece first.

I used a piece of yellowheart (2"x6"x6") and sanded up to 600 grit sandpaper.
