Description

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. Pen artist Richard Kleinhenz shares with the reader his unmatched expertise in pen making. From material selection to final finish and each important step between, The Pen Turner’s Bible teaches every aspect of the pen-making craft. The Pen Turner’s Bible is a unique skill-building book that teaches readers how to build and master their own woodworking tools while creating beautiful and useful pens. 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.

    classic whittling $14.95
    $11.50

    by Rick Wiebe. In a fast-paced and noisy world that makes your head spin, the classic craft of whittling is the perfect antidote. It makes you slow down, take a breath, and live in the moment. Your hands are crafting instead of typing or texting. Best of all, whittling is simple to learn, lasts a lifetime, and requires only a simple knife. It’s no wonder it’s become more popular over recent years. No longer something only old men do, whittling has reached parents spending time with kids, techies taking a break from computer screens and anyone who enjoys being outdoors. In Classic Whittling, author Rick Wiebe — a whittler for more than 60 years — provides the fundamentals for anyone looking to slow down and learn this classic craft. Classic Whittling begins with the basics of a good knife and how to keep it sharp. Wiebe then covers the best woods to use, ranging from sticks to blocks of wood, along with the basic techniques that will get you started. After that, there’s no limit to what you can do. Projects start out with toys, a whistle, and “treens” — simple forks, spoons, and other utensils used while camping. From there, it’s on to the more challenging projects: the chain, the interlinking hearts, the ball-in-a-cage, the sphere-within-a-sphere and several other classics. This handy and fun guide covers them all step-by-step. By the end of Classic Whittling, your knife will become a magic wand that turns firewood into fun, fascinates your family and friends, and lowers your blood pressure.
