Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring more than 25 pen projects and using the latest hardware kits on the market, this helpful how-to book journeys from turning basic ballpoint pens to creating complex fountain pens. Beginning with a simple yet very elegant ballpoint, the steps in its creation are explained in detail while subsequent chapters and projects add additional complexity and techniques. The author's original designs for many unique tools are also included, discussing spiraling jigs in both the past and present and demonstrating their ability to produce the popular rope design as well as straight fluted or faceted pens. With tutorials on both wood and metal lathes, this guide goes beyond step-by-step processes, encouraging wood turners to use their imaginations and adopt this classic art as their own.

Book News Annotation:

Pen artist Kleinhenz teaches readers how to create custom pens through 25 projects. He explains basic tools, drilling, materials, and making a basic ballpoint pen, then step-by-step instructions for easy to advanced projects from a medium-sized rollerball pen to a desk pen, segmented pens, projects using spirals and facets, and using a metal lathe, as well as common problems and their solutions and examples of works by other pen makers. Many color photos of equipment, tools, and examples are incorporated throughout. A list of product resources is provided. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
