Overview

With dozens of creative and easy-to-use patterns, this very last book by the incomparable Patrick Spielman--who died shortly after finishing it--is sure to inspire woodworkers. Intarsia, in which small pieces of wood are joined to create a design and sometimes painted, is already one of the most popular woodworking crafts. And these unique items, which use a combination of readily available softwoods and plywoods, are fast, fun, inexpensive, and far more colorful than intarsia that relies on natural woods. Every woodworker, no matter the level, will find something that's appealing among the diverse choices, which range from wall hangings to tabletops, and include animal gargoyles, a moonscape, wildflowers, a personalized football plaque, and a Cape Cod lighthouse.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Intarsia, consisting of wooden cutouts glued to a wood background, is a popular craft for all ages. Pattern pieces are applied to wood and then cut out with a scroll saw before finishing and gluing. These bright, colorful, contemporary designs of animals, masks, and folk art by veteran woodworkers Droege and the late Spielman (Scroll Saw Pattern Book) are mostly for plaques and boxes, though a 3-D lighthouse is included. For the YA and adult craft collections of public libraries. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
