This review is from the August 2011 issue of the LJ eMag.

Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)
The Big Book of Intarsia Woodworking

I am giving this book on Intarsia a “4” rating not because it isn’t a great book but because most of the patterns I have seen before in scroll saw magazines. (My sunflower fairy door is one example)

Filled with over 30 projects, if you aren’t a regular purchaser of magazines then this book would be a great resource if you are interested in doing intarsia work.

Each project comes with the patterns and “how to” steps plus, a couple of the projects have an in-depth description, providing detailed intarsia and segmentation tips and strategies.

What I really liked about the book is that the projects include ideas for frames as well as the typical designs. The book also has a two-page display of different woods to help select appropriate colours for the projects you are working on. This is a great resource and, with it being in the book, it makes it an easy reference tool.

My Ratings of The Book
Layout and Appearance: Good balance of photos, how-to instructions, projects. Thumbs Up!
Instructions: Clear information and instructions Thumbs Up!
Projects Selection: A wide range of “easy to complex”. Great.
Inspiration: Tutorials by Judy Gale Roberts – awesome. Thumbs Up!
Overall: Thumbs Up!

I’d like to have it myself.

-- If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. Henry David Thoreau
