Book - 1996
Rate this:
Fifty years ago, the fountain pen was an expensive, and very personal, prized possession. Once deposed by mass produced ball points, the fountain pen is making an elegant return through the wood turners art. Michael Cripps takes the reader through every step necessary to create elegant pens (fountain and ball point alike) with turned hardwood outer surfaces in a variety of shapes and sizes. Each step is illustrated from the turners perspective with detailed color photographs. Additional instructions are provided for creating desk accessories including letter openers and magnifying glasses with beautiful hardwood handles. Ladies' pens and perfume applicators round out the text. A gallery provides a view of the finished products. This book is wonderful for turners of all skill levels.
