In plain English, what is involved in making a pen?
I know that at stores like WoodCraft, I can buy the insides of ball point pens, glue them into a wooden blank, and then just turn the outside of the blank into whatever shape I desire. But, is this the process that is used for a fountain pen? And, is that considered "making" a pen?
Simplify it for me, if you would...what is the *basic* process? And what materials/tools would I need to get started in this hobby? It seems like it would be entirely too much fun.
