Review

There comes a time in every serious woodworker's life when we want to try something different. While the scrollsaw is probably not at the top of a furniture maker's wish list it does offer a chance to master a new technique. This collection of 29 projects and patterns from delicate fretwork jewellery boxes to pieces that hold everything from poker chips to flags is a delight for novice scrollers and for the more skilled alike. Artists like John A Nelson, Sue Chrestensen, Kenneth Campbell and Gary MacKay have contributed, and along with their beautiful designs there are also expert step-by-step instructions along with all of the crisp photos, detailed patterns and tips and tcchniques needed to guarantee success with box-making. I was particularly taken with a music box by Rick and Karen Longabaugh, a rose box by Robert Ardizzoni which features segmentation and intarsia techniques, and a secret chamber puzzle box by Karl Taylor. One of the pluses of scrollsawing is the small amount of materials needed: scrollsaw and choice of blades, clamps, sandpaper wood, drill and bits and a finish. Bingo! Not only that, but each of these projects is presented step-by-step fashion with full-scale drawings showing the fretwork involved. And it can get a trifle complicated too, particularly when creating a filigree design. While a world away from conventional boxmaking techniques, these scrollsawn boxes represent a good few evenings of fun with some most attractive results, and no-one ever said woodworking should be serious all the time. Did they?

Book has a number of attractive plans for fretwork boxes. Some plans have designs that carry over to facing page, making it hard to copy the design easily. it would be better to make a fold out page, or a reduced drawing that could be enlarged.
Otherwise, a very nice book.

While this book has some nice plans in it the instructions for making cuts are not there. As an example, for the dragon box all it says in the material list is 4 pieces 3/4" x 2" x 8' ect. That is it. How high or how long is not in the plans so one just has to figure out what to cut from the 4 pieces as the box is not square. Number of errors in the book that I have found already but it has given me some ideas but not worth the price.

...and I wasn't disappointed!!! The pics are clean and well organized and the instruction is written so a woodworking novice, such as myself, could easily follow along. There's also a nice variety of projects that can be done with moderate skill to the absolute pro. I bought this book for the filigree scroll saw boxes and was surprised that there were a couple inside. Love this book! Can't wait until I can get started!!

I bought this book at a woodworking store and naturally paid full price for it. Even at that I like the book and the projects in it. I don't have more than 3 hours on a scroll saw and am also a beginning woodworker interested mainly in boxes and clocks. As far as this book is concerned I feel it is well worth the price I paid for it. In order to copy the patterns as indicated in the book I cut the spine so all the pages were loose then punched holes in the pages to insert into a 3 ring binder. I took out the patterns I wanted to work with then copied them to the size stated on each pattern. My main reason for buying the book was the box with the Maple Leaf inlays and decorative corners. I don't like working with fretwork patterns because I don't have the patience to continually change the blades so I do scroll work that has mostly outside cuts and this books has plenty of those. Overall I think this book is one of the very best for box plans using the scroll saw. Common sense prevails when cutting the patterns and the measurements for the patterns are not important. All you do is cut your wood to fit the pattern and cut it out. If you do that everything falls into place.

Great box designs. Looking forward to making several of these. Some of these designs I have seen prior in the Scrollsaw magazine, however this book takes it all to the next level.
