    Get The Scroll Saw Workbook by John A. Nelson. I've used it to teach a couple of friends.
    You can get get it from Fox Chapel Publishing by clicking on the link at the top of the page.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

      if you want some good patterns try Clasic Fretwork Scroll Saw Patterns by Patrick Spielman and James Reidle I think you can get it here from Foxx but I got mine at the book store- it has some really good patterns to learn on and they are easy to enlarge to fit your needs and simple to follow.

        Fox Chapel host this forum, they have a great selection of beginner books
        If it is patterns you want I would look for projects that interest you and check out some books at the library.

        There are lots of good book reviews online at amazon and chapters.

          Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
          And on each cloud touching the body ?

          I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

          Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

          What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

          Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

          I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
