Pen Turner's Workbook: Step-by-Step Instructions for 9 Projectsby Barry Gross
In-depth instruction and creative ideas for both the novice who has never made a pen and the experienced turner looking for a fresh approach are detailed in this book. From choosing a mini-lathe and turning tools to mastering pen turning basics, and from choosing woods and alternative materials to marketing finished work, everything woodworkers need to know to complete a practical and beautiful custom pen is detailed. Step-by-step instructions are provided for making a variety of pens, including a box elder comfort pen, a bird’s eye maple rollerball pen, a maple burl click pen, a Lacewood Cigar Pen, a pen out of polygem, and a roller-ball-style pen made out of wood and corian. Each step is accompanied by a color photograph and instructional caption.
