Scroll saw artists never seem to have enough patternsespecially wildlife patterns. Here, in her fourth book for Fox Chapel Publishing, artist Lora S. Irish presents more than 50 precisely drawn outline patterns for scrollers. Carefully inked lines make each pattern easy to follow. You may choose to photocopy or scan a copy of the patterns to keep the book intact, or use the patterns directly from the book.
Ms. Irish includes patterns for each commonly known species of north american wildlife. Bears, wolves, deer, eagles and ducks all come to life under the scroller's blade. Ms. Irish also includes brief cutting instructions to aid beginning scrollers.
The instructions include information on what blades to choose, what wood to use and how to make inside and outside cuts. Safety precautions are also outlined.
You can use the patterns in any number of projects. Each pattern can be cut as-is to make scroll saw fretwork plaques. Turning the table left or right will allow the pattern to be cut in relief, giving the final work a compressed, three-dimensional look. Intermediate level scrollers may choose to incorporate the patterns in jewelry boxes, cabinet doors and more.
