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.
