Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Scroll sawers continue to produce some of the most innovative and creative woodwork, and these titles reveal several possibilities. Keener shows how to make 128 three-dimensional sculptures by cutting a design, reattaching the pieces, and then turning the project 90 degrees and cutting another design. With all of the pieces removed, one can view a different scene from each side. Ideas include religious motifs (Christ from one side and a Nativity scene from the other) and sports scenes (a batter one way and a pitcher the other). Stirling shows how to make beautiful castles out of pieces of logs or burls by tilting the work several degrees when cutting, the wood telescopes outward (but not all the way through) and creates towers and spires. Instructions are provided for several castles, farms, and buildings, reminding one of the popular Department 56 buildings and towns. Both titles have numerous color photos and excellent, easily followed instructions. They are recommended for all woodworking collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Sam Keener started woodworking as a small child in his grandfather's shop. Today he and his wife Mary create and sell woodworking projects - mostly compound figures and Intarsia - through their shop in Ohio.

Sam first spotted large compound carvers on a trip to Mexico. With a little encouragement and more than a little patience, Sam adapted the techniques to cut four- to five-inch-tall compound figures on his scroll saw. This is his first book on the technique.
