  • 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.

                    Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                    by Ennobee
                    My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                    Hi Jim.
                    glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                    Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                    Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
                    by jim_mex
                    I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
