Artist and author Diana Thompson follows up her first book, "3D Patterns for the Scroll Saw," with a second book chock-full of brand new, inventive three-dimensional designs. The book begins with an in-depth look at the techniques behind cutting three-dimensional compound pieces. A table explains the properties of domestic and exotic woods. The author provides shop-tested patterns for a dozen clocks, a dozen candle sticks, more than two dozen delightful critters and a carousel music box. Special instructions address the insertion of miniature working clock parts into the wood and the drilling of candle stick holes.
