Scroll sawyers of all skill levels learn the secrets of creating these fascinating wooden inlay projects by using a scroll saw and other common woodworking tools. Fourteen portraits of North American wildlife, including an eagle, a mustang, an owl, and a fox, are provided. Chapters address the necessary steps to get started, including wood choice, pattern use, backing, and sanding, while also covering more complex issues such as adding texture to finished pieces to simulate fur.
