  • Book on How to do Inlay work

    Now that I know which scroll saw I want to buy, I need a good book on how to do inlay work. I am a total beginner and a woman. I bought a book on Intarsia, thinking it was the same as inlay. See, I told you I was a complete beginner and a woman . It was at Amazon under inlay, how was I to know? Can you suggest a good, basic how to book to get me started? Also, a good book on using scroll saws (I'm buying a DeWalt 20'). Thank you.

    Shop-Tested Scrollsaw Techniques & Projects You Can Make

    from the editor's of WOOD magazine. Has the basics of both subjects plus quite a few others. Don't know where to get it though, it came with my scrollsaw. Had it about three years so still may be in print. You can try a search on abebooks.com or bookfinder.com

      Thanks for the suggestion. I found the book. What do you think the chances are that it would come with a DeWalt? I don't want to buy it and then get another copy

        I didn't get one with the DeWalt I bought, but that was 5 or 6 years ago ... I got it with the RBI that I bought about 3 years ago.


        Anybody get one with their DeWalt????

          I bought my Dewalt from Woodcraft about 4 years ago and they threw in a Dewalt stool (very helpful for a scrollsaw), but no books.

              Infoseeker, are you talking about a book on Marquetry which is an artform that uses veneers to make scenes. It looks like Intarsia but everything is flat and pieces of veener wood are used ? If this is what you are looking for just punch up Marquetry books and then follow your nose. Hope this helps. Inlay work is something similar but it isn't. Good Luck!! JTTHECLOCKMAN

                  I purchased MANY books and my fav is still Scroll Saw Art by Patrick Spielman and Kerry Shirts. I love wildlife and it is all pictures of wildlife with diff skill levels. Don't worry about being a woman....so am I. And I can do more with my scroll saw, router, etc., than most men I know.[quote author=Infoseeker link=board=Beginner_SS;num=1061058539;start=0#0 date=08/16/03 at 13:28:58] Now that I know which scroll saw I want to buy, I need a good book on how to do inlay work.

                    I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

                    I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

                    Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

                    Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...

                    Due to Covid-19 all events in Ontario have been cancelled including the Wood Show in Toronto. It was a great event but this year it is going to go virtual.

                    They will have a number of seminars and the ability to tour vendor sites. Not sure how it all works. It will be FREE but you can pay...

                    Got mine yesterday. Regarding Christmas Items I seem to recall a few years ago that they moved up the Holiday related items to the Fall Issue to give us more time to make.

                    It was great to see all of the variety of designs and contributors available...
