A new challenge for scroll saw craftsmen -- how to create a single object that is shaped so that two different subjects are revealed with the object is turned 90 degrees. Compound figures are created when a single object is shaped so that two different subjects are revealed when the object is turned 90 degrees-from one angle it is an angel, from another a butterfly. This intermediate level book provides 128 scroll saw patterns for creating these objects and detailed instructions on how to execute the tricky scroll saw maneuvers required to cut them. Take a look at one of Sam Keener's scroll saw pieces and you'll see an angel. Turn it 90 degrees and look again. Now you'll see a butterfly perched on a flower. Pick up another piece: one side is a musical note; the other is a saxophone. A step beyond "three-dimensional" scroll saw projects, these two-in-one figures are made with a unique cutting technique perfected by author and artist Sam Keener. · A complete guide to creating amazing 3D compound figures for intermediate level scroll sawyers · Includes 128 scroll saw patterns for amazing two-in-one designs · Provides detailed instructions on scroll saw techniques and how

Scroll sawers continue to produce some of the most innovative and creative woodwork, and these titles reveal several possibilities. Keener shows how to make 128 three-dimensional sculptures by cutting a design, reattaching the pieces, and then turning the project 90 degrees and cutting another design. With all of the pieces removed, one can view a different scene from each side. Ideas include religious motifs (Christ from one side and a Nativity scene from the other) and sports scenes (a batter one way and a pitcher the other). Stirling shows how to make beautiful castles out of pieces of logs or burls by tilting the work several degrees when cutting, the wood telescopes outward (but not all the way through) and creates towers and spires. Instructions are provided for several castles, farms, and buildings, reminding one of the popular Department 56 buildings and towns. Both titles have numerous color photos and excellent, easily followed instructions. They are recommended for all woodworking collections.
