Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Putting pen (or pencil) to paper is one thing. Crafting either from scratch is another. Turners looking for professional guidance and new ideas will embrace "Complete Guide to Turning Pens and Pencils." This comprehensive book includes 15 projects (12 pens/3 pencils), ranging from basic to intermediate and advanced. Attractive to turners is that many of the projects can be made in a short time utilizing just a standing lathe or even a small, portable model. In these pages, equipment and materials are clearly presented, including types of mechanism kits available. Techniques from blank preparation to sanding, polishing, and finishing are explained in easy-to-follow step-by-step photographs. Also included is a range of casing styles to suit all tastes, from fine timbers, sustainable woods, and acrylics to polymer clay. An added bonus is an extensive gallery of actual-size pens and pencils for inspiration. Putting pen to paper never looked so good!
