Part 2: The Pool Cue Pen which is the 2nd disc in this 2 disc set is also sold separately if for some reason you did not want to see for first disc in this set (it is highly recommended to see the first disc though as it has the presentation of the Gisi segmenting techniques.)

More on Part 2: The Pool Cue Pen
Welcome back to Mark's shop. In this video, Mark will teach you the technique for a pen that does not use a pen kit: the pool cue pen. Building on the techniques learned in the first Gisi Segmenting Technique DVD, you will learn to build a new kind of segmented blank that not only applies to this pen, but can also be applied to any turned items. In addition to the wood and Gisi Accent Strips used in the last DVD, you will add acrylic to this project. In fact, by way of introduction to acrylic turning, Mark gives an entire lesson on acrylic bottle stop turning in the DVD extras.
So enjoy this DVD as you learn the next Gisi Segmenting Technique.
