    I agree with Janette, check Fox Chapel--good assortment of carving, woodburning, etc books as well.

    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!

    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

    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.

    I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

    The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
