By working through these projects, artists will build their confidence in using the mini-saw to execute techniques such as cutting tighter lines, cutting through a tight curve, and cutting 90-degree angles. The exercises also emphasize tips on cleaning, coloring, and sealing gourds. The book includes an extensive inspirational gallery and resource section for those who aspire to even more advanced projects.
