Product Description

From the Back Cover

Here is the definitive guide to turning writing instruments. Kip Christensen and Rex Burningham leave no aspect of this very satisfying craft untouched in their bid to produce the best book on the subject for both seasoned pen makers and anyone new to this absorbing craft.

Through clear text and superb photography, the authors describe the various ways of approaching the task, allowing you to select the best procedure for the equipment available and work according to your desired scale of production. In addition to showing how to turn pens freehand, they demonstrate alternative methods, including using a router and lathe combined, ornamental milling, and use of a jeweller’s lathe.

The projects were selected to show a wide variety of techniques used in marking various types of writing instrument, including:

  • Twist pen
  • Click pen
  • European-style pen
  • American twist pen
  • Tapered rollerball
  • Variations on basic pens
