  • 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.

                    SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                    Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                    Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
