Overview

Scrolling takes on a whole new look in this stylish book by author, artist and fresh face in the woodworking community, Roshaan Ganief. A combination of simplistic, natural beauty mixed with a chic, modern touch, the 40 attractive projects presented range from lighting accessories and wall art, to pendants, coasters, candle holders and more. Ganief's use of wood tones and grains gives her work a richness and depth, raising the pieces to "art" staus.

Each chapter in Simply Wood, begins with step-by-step projects and offers additional alternate patterns that can be used. A variety of themes such as Cubic, Celtic, Eastern and Spiritual are woven throughout each chapter, allowing the reader to make a collection of items from any one particular theme.

A gallery of the author's work showcases the wide variety of items that can be made by enlarging, reducing or simply alternating patterns. While Ganief's flair and finesse with intricate designs and cuts, seems geared toward the expert woodworker, her style is well suited for those just starting out, since most of the projects are small in scale and require few tools.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Woodworking artist Ganief focuses on shapes and motifs in this collection of stylish and decorative woodworking projects using a scroll saw. The projects include no-nonsense descriptions and close-up photographs of each step, as well as all necessary templates for cutting. The aesthetic is modern and geometric, and natural and Asian motifs figure prominently. While Ganief provides some instruction for newer woodworkers, knowledge of basic techniques and access to woodworking supplies are assumed.
