A few excerpts:
"Carved with figures strange and sweet,
All made out of the carver's brain." "Fret-sawing has, within a few years past, jumped into a popularity rather hard to realize by those who are not within the pale of its fascinations; but it is a fact that today it is one of the most popular of home amusements. Within many a pleasant home is heard the gentle z-z-z of the handsaw, or the ore sonorous buss of the jig-machine; and walls and tables everywhere are loaded with the results of these labors... The true secret of this suddenly acquired popularity lies in the fact that this amusement is within the reach of almost every one, that it is easily acquired, costs but little, and is really productive of good results. It keeps us happily busy, gives us a resource for rainy days, and helps us recall ourselves pleasantly to the remembrance of those friends, whom we gratify by thinking of the while we make some pretty little object to adorn their rooms... Let us, then, gather up our tools, lay in a stock of beautiful and enduring wood, and prepare ourselves to become skilled work-men in this pleasant field."
