    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!
