I purchased this book by Patrick Spielman a few weeks ago. The book was published a few years ago but remains very relevant today. Some of the hardware is a little out of date but that does not detract from the book overall. I have to say it is the most informative scroll saw handbook I have ever picked up. The book covers everything from the history of scrolling to advanced sawing technique.
The book is a hefty 350 pages long with very little fluff. There are informative chapters on every subject you can think of. I have several scroll saw books but this is the one I keep on my desk for quick reference.
A nice feature of the book is the relatively low price for what you get.
If you are new to scrolling you need this book. It will take you to the next level much more quickly than you will on your own. I would also recommend the book to the more serious scroller for general reference and inspiration.
If you are interested in this handbook click the link above and you can purchase if through my eStore which is an Amazon affiliate. In the interest of fairness I do get a small fee for selling this book. That said I do think it is a fine product.
