Stimulating and instructional, this resource for scroll-sawyers and woodworkers goes beyond the usual basics manual, offering a wider range of patterns and useful finishing information. The vision-expanding projects—from such masters as Patrick Spielman and Kerry Shirts—help intermediates take that next step and become accomplished artists. Among the beautiful, skill-enhancing options are decorative scrollwork; “painting” with wood, using segmented and stained pieces; and scrolling and sculpting. Craft graceful ornamental birds with elaborately scrolled feathers, and suspend them from wire. A quick and easy Jumping Jack Santa toy will help make Christmas merry. Even beginners can complete any of the colorful and adorable animal portraits in wood. Or try elegant clock projects, home accessories, signs, and other favorite themes.
