Renowned woodworking artisan and best-selling author Patrick Spielman presents an incredible collection of more than 235 decorative and functional patterns and more than 100 projects. Many of these projects are ideal for the beginning scroller and can be completed in an hour or less. Most do not require expert sawing skills or fancy equipment. Work with a variety of materials other than wood, including paper, plastic, and metal, and try your hand at using interesting finishes that make wood look like polished metal or an aged turquoise patina. Make key-chains, bookmarks, objects d'art, holiday ornaments, crosses, fretwork shelves, clocks, candlesticks, boxes, name signs, dimensional scenes, trivets, and more. The motifs used range from animals and people to Celtic designs to sports and holiday themes. A review of basic techniques and illustrated instructions help you complete these fun and easy projects!
