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 & 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!
