The Pen Turner's Bible by Richard Kleinhenz
starts with a simple ballpoint pen, which explains the steps for pen creation in detail, then progresses through more complex projects and techniques, including the use of spiraling jigs and metal-turning lathes. It includes the author's own plan for an expansion mandrel, and pen projects that include segments, spirals and laser-cutting. The book covers both using pen turning kits and developing your own designs. The author is the founder of the Annual Penturners Rendezvous in Provo, Utah. The price for The Pen Turner's Bible
by Richard Kleinhenz (Linden Publishing, ISBN 978-1-941936-61-3) is $22.95.
