Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Rothman (Wooden Bowls from the Scroll Saw ) here presents a second collection of projects, focusing on wooden boxes-but these aren't the wooden boxes you might imagine. Rothman's boxes are shaped like wrapped gifts, furniture, and food, and they often include stripes or resin inlays. The first box in each chapter includes step-by-step directions with photographs to illustrate basic techniques, and these can be used as a reference for the other boxes in the chapter. VERDICT Rothman's designs are eye-catching and creative; woodworkers can learn from the techniques illustrated in this collection even if the projects are not their style.

Meet the Author

An eldercare specialist, Carole has co-authored two books on caregiving: I'll Take Care of You< and the 2002 IPPY Award-winner for best self-help book, Are Your Parents Driving You Crazy. A skilled speaker and interviewee, she has been a guest on scores of live TV and radio shows throughout the U.S.

After joining a community woodshop, she quickly mastered the scroll saw and began teaching the tool to her neighbors and friends. Although from time to time she has encountered jealousy and disdain from her male woodworking counter-parts, Carole doesn't let their attitude get her down. Instead, she keeps on cutting and lets her work speak for itself.

    Very Inspiring Book!

    This is the second book by Carole Rothman that I have purchased. It is every bit as inspiring and instructive as her first book, "Wooden Bowls from the Scroll Saw". Many different projects are presented with complete instructions. I highly recommend this book!
