This instructional guide presents 40 decorative scrollwork projects to create distinctive personal accessories, wall art, home décor and office items.
The author begins with woodworking safety tips and describes the power tools (in addition to a scroll saw), hand tools and supplies needed to complete the projects. She gives advice on selecting wood and alternative materials and covers techniques for working with patterns, setting up the scroll saw, sanding and finishing.
Organized by design themes, the projects range from basic bookmarks, pendants and coasters to the more advanced key cabinet, accent lamp and magnet board.
Includes step-by-step instructions supplemented with color photos, patterns, tools and materials lists and cutting lists. An appendix shows how to make three useful shop jigs. A good reference and inspiration for both the novice and the experienced scroll saw enthusiast.
