Segmented pens?

As I am new to wood turning, I am enjoying trying everything. I have tried a segmented travel mug for my wife. It didn't work, but will try again.

However, I have also turned a few pens. I guess they could be considered segmented.

Hope you like them.

Would appreciate any tips, tricks, techniques.

Thanks,

Tom

Thanks Bob, that does look a lot easier than I thought it would be. Not this weekend, already have plans. Maybe the next weekend though. I really want to try one.

They come out really nice. Make sure you sand both sides before gluing, you get a better fit and look

I also just started turning pens as a complement to my segmented bowl turning. Attached is a version of a segmented pen. It is based on a slimline kit minus the center ring. Can you see how it is made?
