    $14.90

    With more than 25 pen projects, using the latest hardware kits on the market, The Pen Turner’s Bible takes the reader from simple ballpoint pen designs on a wood lathe, to complex fountain pen designs on a metal lathe.

From material selection to final finish and each important step between, The Pen Turner’s Bible teaches every aspect of the pen-making craft.

By tackling these pen-making projects, the reader will quickly develop his or her woodworking skills to a highly advanced level.Beginning with a simple, yet very elegant, ballpoint pen, the steps in the creation of a pen are explained in detail. Subsequent chapters and projects add more complexity, techniques, and tools, teaching readers to progress from basic pen-turning kits to developing their own free designs.These pen-turning projects will also develop the reader’s skills with using and building tools. The Pen Turner’s Bible discusses spiraling jigs past and present, and demonstrates their use on five pens with detailed instructions. A spiral jig allows you how to make the popular rope design, spiral grooved, as well as straight fluted or faceted pens. The metal lathe can do just about everything a wood lathe can, and it can also support a wood lathe with tooling made on it plus allow thread cutting and other operations not easily done on a wood lathe. Kleinhenz also presents his own original designs for unique tools and jigs that the reader can make at home — tools that are as good or better than commercial tools. Throughout The Pen Turner’s Bible, the reader is given more than just a step-by-step process to follow. The author always provides a broader perspective to stimulate creativity so that readers are encouraged to take the techniques beyond the specific instructions, use their imaginations, and make the art their own.Audience: Woodworking home hobbyists.
