Kerry Shirts's designs are one of the best things to happen in our scroll saw world. Kerry Shirt with Pat Spielman has put together more than 30 patterns of scroll saw segmentation in a new art form. Very easy to follow patterns with detail explanation on staining and finishing. All patterns are shown finished in full color. I buy a lot of books on scroll saw subject but I've never seen a book as well illustrated and detailed as Kerry's Scroll Saw Art.
I've been fortunate enough to have actually seen some of Kerry's detailed art in person, and always wondered how he did it. Thank you for sharing your secrets at last! The 3-D techniques he has perfected brings scroll sawing in to the new millenium. Even the simple projects make me look like a pro! The section on staining was great. I really like how the book is divided for beginners (me), intermediate and advanced. It'll keep me busy for years! As a side note... over half of the book was in color, that alone made it worth buying. --You won't be disappointed. A must-have for scroll sawing at any level!
Item has many stains from getting wet. Smell's like it's been in a moldy damp place for awhile.But pictures are still good. Just needs to be aired out for awhile.
This book was well worth the money. Detailed, beautiful pictures, lots of infor. If you can get a copy of this book, you won't be disappointed.
