Covers everything: brands and styles, parts and features, especially blades. A clear approach to cutting covers, curves, straight lines, sharp corners and angles, true arcs, and perfect circles; making large cutouts and inside cutouts, stack-cutting, bevel-sawing, and much more, plus projects. “A good overall introduction... extensively illustrated with hundreds of exceptionally clear black-and-white photos.”—Library Journal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Of all power tools, the scroll saw is the least intimidating for the beginning woodworker. While its simple operation and relative safety make it ideal for the casual hobbyist, it still finds occasional use by the experienced woodworker needing to make cuts of very precise design and close tolerances. Spielman's modest guide provides a good overall introduction. Besides demonstrating fundamental techniques, the book also covers the saw itself, examining types of saws, desired features, characteristics of quality saws, and upgrading of lesser-quality saws. It is extensively illustrated with hundreds of exceptionally clear black-and-white photos. Worthwhile for the hobby section of most public libraries.-- Bill Demo, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll., Dryden, N.Y.
