Putting pen (or pencil) to paper is one thing, crafting either from scratch is another.
Turners looking for professional guidance and new ideas will embrace "Complete Guide to Turning Pens & Pencils." This comprehensive book includes 15 projects (12 pens/3 pencils), ranging from basic to intermediate and advanced.

An added bonus is an extensive gallery of actual-size pens and pencils for inspiration. Putting pen to paper never looked so good!
