I really had never used a scrollsaw until I got a wild hair one boring January day. I talked my husband into buying me a well-loved secondhand saw. He is used to my crafty whims so he didn't put up much of an argument when I explained I needed a scrollsaw. That little woodworking whim has led to countless hours of creating and even my own book, Natural Wooden Toys: 75 Easy-to-Make and Kid-Safe Designs to Inspire Imaginations & Creative Play.
