Extract from back cover of book:

Pens and pencils made at the wood lathe are becoming increasingly popular. Fantastic sellers at art and craft shows, cherished treasures for family, fabulous gifts, these unique writing instruments are coming of age. Kits to make a variety of styles are widely available, but the techniques to make a pen which works well and looks spectacular are harder to find. This book fills the need with 273 step-by-step color photographs and helpful text. Skilled wood turner, Dick Sing, provides detailed instructions and a wealth of tips and techniques for twelve different styles of pens. Advice on selection of materials, set-up, turning, and finishing techniques, and tips for final assembly of the pens make this book the ultimate reference for the field.
