    Can someone recommend books and/or certain authors to teach scroll sawing to beginners. There seem to be a lot out there I just wanted to hear some opinions before buying. These will be for my wife for Christmas.

    I don't know much about scroll sawing or the authors on teaching. I was in a woodcraft shop last night and they teach scroll sawing, carving, woodturning and sharpening. You can check your area to see if there is a Woodcraft store. The person I talked to said that all of the Woodcraft stores teach these classes, they should have schedules. They also have a large selection of books.

      One of the best books is 'Scroll Saw Workbook' by John Nelson.
      I had many good testimonials from people who bought the book. You can buy it direct from Fox Chapel or at most book stores. Many wood working stores also sell it.
      Why not get her also a sample pack of 5 dozen blades and save $ 3.00. Check the 'accessory' page on www.mikesworkshop.com.

        I really like that book too! I'm in the process of working my way through it right now! I'd suggest it and also suggest that your follow John's advice and not try to go on to advanced projects until you are good at doing the simple ones!! I learned the hard way and have a butterfly with only one antenna and half a wing...I wasn't even that sadistic as a child!

          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

          A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

          I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

          Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
