Scroll saw books are often just a monotonous rehash of the same old patterns, but every once in a while a truly original title comes along. This one is sure to perk up even the most jaded woodworker. Browning has developed a method of scroll-sawing images from photographs using thin plywood. The results are remarkable his likenesses of famous people or family members (shown with their photos) are uncanny. While those with access to a scanner and photo software will have greatest success, Browning also shows how to trace or draw patterns. In addition, he provides 55 patterns for animals and people (including Christian and historic images). Sure to be of interest to most woodworkers and the public libraries that serve them.
