For a book that is largely made up of the contributions from twenty-five scroll saw experts, the Big Book of Scroll Saw Woodworking hangs together remarkably well. The editors have done an admirable job of pulling it together into a coherent book. The book focuses on the scroll saw and its many uses. The introductory sections are good and to the point. They cover topics like selecting materials, working with patterns, scroll saw tips and blade selection.
The book begins with the simplest of projects and moves through projects of increasing difficulty to very advanced fretwork projects, along with working with metals and synthetics like Corian. Each project comes with a brief introduction including suggestions for materials and tools, tips on the use of the saw, planning the project, finishing, and so on.
The accompanying photographs and exploded diagrams are very helpful and scaled down plans are provided. The book includes sixty-plus projects which range from fretwork, intarsia and segmentation, inlay and relief, baskets and boxes, puzzles and toys, portraits, and working with non-woods like Corian and metal. If there is one thing that I would have liked to have seen in the book, it would be a discussion of the selection of the scroll saw itself.
Having once had an inexpensive scroll saw and now having a better one, they are like night and day.
