  • 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.

                    New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                    It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                    Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                    I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                    on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
