  • books for beginners

    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

        I have always found book by Patrick Speilman to be excellent on this stuff.

            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!

                Good observation Scott! You found a mistake on my side

                The shop extension should read 11ft, not 13ft! I screwed up my conversion from cms to feet and inches.

                You had me worried though that I'd screwed up the placement holes for the uprights and cross beams so I just went...

                Just curious about the 13' extension. Building material, especially sheet goods are in 4' increments. Why 13'?...

                Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

                Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

                Wow! - this a stunning piece!

                In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....
