This book is an excellent beginner scroll saw pattern book. It's 224 pages are packed with various patterns and ideas for the beginner. The patterns are not complex, but they are very attractive for being so simple. Most have a few inside cuts add some defination to the project. The Spielman's also take a simple penguin design, and show various ways to "alter" the pattern to creat a totally diffent looking design, and the user is fully accomplied with both words and pictures.This is my 12 year olds favorite book. He took it to school one day, and came home with over 30 different 'orders' from his friends, from cats to coyotes to ducks to hanging mobiles, this book has given him the confidence in scroll sawing. The kids are now picking out their 'birthday' presents that they want my son to make for them, and he has the confidence with this book to do it and be successful.A must for any scroll sawyer's library of books and patterns.
wanted to give it a 5 but it came used instead of brand new which was still in great condition. Inside had some additional notes and patterns from a previous owner.
This review is based upon the reaction I received as this was a gift for someone. His response when he opened the present was wonderful, he reviewed it from cover to cover. He is best described as an older person with a young heart and one who receives great pleasure in making items from a scroll saw. I am told he has already made some of the items and looks forward to making more. I have received many thanks from several people close to him.
This was my first scroll saw book and it has a wide array of patterns for a beginner. I made some smaller basic animals, elephant, camel, etc., a wolf and a cactus that stands upright. A good starter for a beginner.
