Book Description

1 Oct 2007 For the First Time
The hugely successful For the First Time series of beginners' guides ventures into woodworking, and that's good news for those who want to try one of today's hottest crafts. With this covers-all-the-basics, fully illustrated, question-and-answer manual to the scroll saw, novices can jump in and create great decorative items right away. From the most fundamental query - ""How do I get started?"" - it moves on to questions such as ""How do I attach a pattern onto the wood and then cut a basic shape?"" and ""How do I make a simple jigsaw puzzle?"" Go beyond the basics and expand your skills, with instructions for fashioning a Fleur-de-lis Wall Shelf with an attractive support bracket, making a ""Mighty Moose"" clock, and crafting 3-D bunnies, baskets, and tulips. Includes many practical, eye catching projects.

4.0 out of 5 stars good place to start your time with a scroll saw 24 April 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book both informative and entertaining in it's content. The plans and projects take you from the simplest of tasks up to some that require patience and a steady hand - which you get with the early projects in the book. Excellent value and very useful.

Have just started a new hobby and this book has plenty of tips together with some templates to get me started. Not sure that my husband is happy about me taking over his workshop though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good inspiration 1 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for the beginner, but experienced scrollers need not be put off either as it caters for everyone. Nice introduction and well laid out, you can photocopy every pattern featured. Step-by-step it takes you through scroll sawing in easy to understand language. Dirk Boelman is a real inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book 27 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely book for a beginner at scroll saw. It has achievable projects and is simple to understand. The projects are a little old fashioned for me but that is a matter of taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the first time
Nice book, but some quite difficult projects. Not exactly for the complete beginner. I bought the Scroll Saw Pattern Book at the same time and that had very simple patterns.
