    Thanks for the info guys, I checked Sloans website and the book you suggested OM is still available,I'll be ordering it tomorrow.
    I can't believe the number of books Mr. Spielman wrote or had a part of, did he ever have time to really make any sawdust?
    Thanks again to all.

    I agree with old mooner, that book will teach you heaps, and the projects go from simple, to extremely complicated. If I ever tried one of the tough ones in that book, I would lose 1/2 of the pieces in the sawdust pile on the floor! Its a great book.

    Bill--There are several good books out there on segmentation. A simple start with some smaller projects might be one of Frank Droge's books. The Angel fish and the mask in my gallery are from one of his. The best book on segmentation I have ever come across is called "Scroll Saw Art" by Patrick Spielman and Kerry Shirts. It has a picture of a Zebra on the cover. I think it is out of print, but I noticed that Sloan's Woodshop had it for sale not too long ago. Some of the patterns that both I and Neal Moore have done come from that book. It would be worthwhile trying toget a copy.

    Hi Bill

    I'm not sure you need a book to have a go at segmentation - it's just a matter of cutting around the outlines on a suitable pattern, then rounding over the edges with either a router or abrasive paper. You can use pictures in childrens' coloring books as patterns.

    That said, Pat Spielman wrote a good book on segmentation called Scroll Saw Segmentation (which I have and like) and Creative Scroll Saw Segmentation (which I don't have).

    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 scrollsawer.com 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...

    Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
