"Metal Artist's Workbench" provides readers with everything they need to know to use the jeweler's saw by deconstructing the skill into two components: understanding exactly how the tool works and then how to actually use it for maximum efficiency. The book is divided into two parts: a thorough techniques section, followed by 15 projects - including pins, pendants, display art, a photo frame and more. In addition to de-mystifying the saw itself, Thomas gives readers adequate information on the jeweler's bench pin - the 'silent partner' in the sawing process. Sidebars containing photos of several established artists' own bench pins will offer provocative breaks in the book, as will many inspiring gallery photos of Thomas' own work and that of others.
Tom's Learn to Saw™ Kit is the perfect companion to this book. It comes with all of the tools and materials needed to begin hands-on learning immediately, as well as a DVD that further illustrates many of the techniques covered in the book. See below to add to cart.
