Scroll saws are probably the most popular woodworking tools, as they are big among hobbyists. Each of the 50 projects contains colour patterns & photos. Author is one of the best-recognised names in woodworking. Projects can be made from readily available woods With dozens of creative and easy-to-use patterns, this very last book by the incomparable Patrick Spielman - who died shortly after finishing it - is sure to inspire woodworkers. Intarsia, in which small pieces of wood are joined to create a design and sometimes painted, is already one of the most popular woodworking crafts. And these unique items, which use a combination of readily available softwoods and plywoods, are fast, fun, inexpensive, and far more colourful than intarsia that relies on natural woods. Every woodworker, no matter the level, will find something that's appealing among the diverse choices, which range from wall hangings to tabletops, and include animal gargoyles, a moonscape, wildflowers, a personalized football plaque, and a Cape Cod lighthouse.
