The New Scroll Saw Handbook

Yesterday, I posted episode 2 of Scroll Saw Goodies Podcast. In this episode, I talk about how to choose a scroll saw. One of the major resources I used while researching this topic was Patrick Spielman's The New Scroll Saw Handbook. This is such a great book, I wanted to make it the Book Of The Week. This book is a must own for all scrollers. It has some great history, which is really interesting. But what makes it a necessity is that he explains everything you wanted to know about scroll saws, blades, and additional equipment. He also goes into great detail about pretty much every form of scrolling, from fine fretwork to intarsia. But, don't come here looking for patterns, though. Instead he packed it full of invaluable information and techniques. This is great for casual reading or as a reference book and is a must have for any serious scroller. Check it out!
