Hall's ''The Complete Guide to Turning Pens & Pencils'' is a comprehensive collection of tips, techniques, and step-by-step photographs showing how to make 12 pens and three pencils. Project skill requirements range from basic to intermediate to advanced, with some projects only requiring a short amount of time with a standing lathe or even a small, portable model. Hall clearly presents detailed information on materials, equipment, and techniques for sanding, polishing, and finishing.
