  • Another New Member In Iowa

    Another Iowan here. Been woodworking for about 18 years. Recently got serious again and upgraded alot of the tools in my shop. Not a huge upgrade on the scroll saw but a decent one. Mine is the Delta SS350. Learning it's little quirks and such. I am interested in making traditional and scroll boxes.
    Looking forward to the site.
    P.S. Just subscribed to the mag from a youngster selling mags at the door!

    Welcome Corey!!

    Pretty good site here, You will learn a lot from these people.
    I found this site, about the time the scrolling thread was on the Creek.
    It`s a good site(Creek) but very few into scrolling, as I am so I went looking for a scrolling specific site.

        Welcome, Corey!
        You will find folks knowledgeable about most sorts of scrolling here - all you gotta do is ask.
        For boxes, have you checked out Diana Thompson's book - I think it is called something entirely appropriate like Scroll Saw boxes, or Making Boxes on your Scroll Saw - just search on this site for it - I like her books a lot, and her instructions and patterns are perfectly clear.
        Good luck to you.

          I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

          He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

          Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

          I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

          I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
          They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

          The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
