This book doesn't bother wasting pages on all that seemingly mandatory safety and parts of the saw nonsense that you don't really need to read again. It jumps right in with page after page after page of patterns. They are bold lined and xerox really well for adhering to your wood. The book even seems to bend open on the scanner better than the rest of my scrolling books. Many of the patterns repeat themselves in a sense throughout the book leading to a cohesiveness in the items. For example, the miniature sized patterns at the beginning contain a duck who's general shape is then used blown up as a larger duck cut out in the later duck section of the book. The majority of the patterns are simple cut out shapes and the book does include tips on how to paint or otherwise finish your cut outs to match a traditional country decor. There are a few patterns for more complicated items like a candle holder, a cow paper towel rack, a set of mini shelves, coasters and a match box for the wall. The simplicity inherent to the country decorating style makes these patterns great for a beginner, but you'll want another book to cover the real beginner stuff, like how to chose wood and blades since as I stated earlier, this book is all patterns!
they should learn what free means. you as for free wood working plans and all you get is plans that have a price.

I am just starting out on my scroll saw and my wife loves these patterns the seller done a great job
