    Can anyone recommend a book or books for the beginner in scrolling. Something that may talk about the types of blades to use and types of wood for different projects.

    You have the biggest book available by signing up. Search the Various threads and you can pretty much find all the information posted here some where. If not start a thread and watch the responses.

    This sight has been very helpfull since I have signed up.

      Let me first start by saying welcome to the forum. As mentioned, you do have a large source of information here at your fingertips. However, since you asked about books and blades specifically - here's my suggestion.

      When it comes to blades, there are several blade dealers who visit this board, asking them a specific question on blade use in the tools area may get you more information that is printed in any book. Olson blades also have a chart on their site which will suggest specific blades for specific wood / projects.

      When it comes to books, well "Scroll Saw Workbook" by John and Joyce Nelson is my suggestion. This book will take you step by step through a variety of scrollsaw techniques. There is a review on our site if you wish to read it, and I am sure Amazon.com (.ca) will have ample to say about it aswell.

      Hope this helps.

      Take care
      Toni

            Guess it depends on the kind of scrolling you plan on doing. There are books just to learn the scrollsaw, books on learning all the wonderful types of scrolling people do, etc. etc. Don't forget Fox Chapel has just about any type of book you might be looking for!

                That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

                They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
