Fretwork is back again and more popular than ever. These beautiful, intricate Victorian gingerbread designs have offered a feast for the eyes both inside and outside the home for generations. Fretwork accents range from grilles, balusters, and door and window frames, to furnishings and accessories for every room. With their ornate elegance they're stunning to look at, but for the woodworker they've always been a fiendishly complicated challenge-until now. In this book two expert woodworkers make it possible for you to put your scroll saw to work in creating the magic of fretwork design. Projects that used to take untold hours now can be finished quickly and easily. The secret lies in the Spielman touch and the Reidle design concepts-for a variety of projects, with easy-to-follow instructions, photos of finished pieces, and pages and pages of shortcuts, tips, and handy techniques.
