“Beginning with a good historical survey of writing implements, [the authors] first tackle equipment and basic pens and pencils, then cover style, methodology, and material variations. Some of the more unusual inclusions are pens of antler or checkered polymer clay, and instruments embellished by inlay and wood burning. The last chapter offers selling tips.” —Booklist
This book is head and shoulders about anything else out there on pen turning. After reading the Sing and Cripps primers I ordered this. There is no question that this book should be the one you read. It is well organized, clearly written and gives multiple ways to perform each step in the pen making progress.
It starts with an historical discussion which may or may not suit your tastes, but then goes into very good detail about the equipment, supplies, wood selection, kit types, finishing products, glues etc that are available and what is required/suggested based on your needs.
Next it goes through the making of a basic pen in good detail with the minimalist type supplies etc. Each subsequent section details a new type of pen, but also adds different ways to do each of the basic procedures and details different equipment that can be used. Through this process, the reader gets a good understanding of what is out there and how to use it. There is then a section on alternate materials and how they differ in the treatment required to use them. Then a section on decorating and variation in styles. This is followed by a tips and tricks section, which will help solve some of the common problems, as well as, provide tricks to improve quality and speed. Finally there is a very good gallery with a multitude of styles from multiple contributors.
If you can only buy one book, it would be foolish to go with any other. You will find yourself refering back to it often and will save yourself a lot of money and headaches through the advise the authors give.
Actually, turning pens is really easy but finding the information on how to do it is a bit harder. This book is a complete treatise on pen turning. The only reason I gave it four stars is that the section on mandrels is a bit sparse. I didn't even know what a mandrel was and was still a bit foggy after reading about it in this book. The best way is just to jump in. It's super easy and the product you produce is absolutely beautiful! I found this book to be a valuable asset to getting started.
I bought this book over three years ago when I first started getting into pen turning, and it saved me a lot of frustrating moments, answered a lot of questions I had (and many more I didn't even know enough to ask), and pointed me in the right direction. Now, with several hundred pens completed, I picked it back up to thumb through for the pictures, and realized it taught me even more.

If you are a beginning pen turner, or thinking of giving it a try (and I recommend you do!), then this book should be jsut as important as some of your pen turning tools and supplies. If your budget allows, they also have a video that takes you step-by-step which I also recommend and compliments this book.
I studied woodworking under Kip Christensen at BYU in the early 2000's. Kip is one of the finest woodworkers and wood turners alive today. I've wanted his book for sometime and finally bought it. Very informative - everything you need to know to turn pens.
Just about everything you need to know about turning pens. What isn't here, you don't need to know. Good job from the sellers who did as good as the author.
Great book to have in your collection if you are interested in pen turning.
This book is all you need to get started in pen turning. For me it was much more wordy than necessary, but a beginner will appreciate what I find annoying, so I won't complain about the wordiness. Loads of excellent pictures to illustrate processes and to show the vast array of options.
Very good book for beginners. If you have been turning pens for a while you will not find this book as informative. However, they have some pretty good ideas on turning pens and adding different materials to make into pens. The book is worth the money for a beginner or even an experienced pen turner wanting to brush up on the basics.
