  • Greetings from West Virginia

    I thought I would si Hi. I just recently did my first wood project and it was a set of cornhole boards. Now I have borrowed my dad's Delta 16 inch scroll saw and thought I would give it a try. It's harder than it looks following a pencil line that was been traced on wood. Can anyone point me toward someeasy beginner plans?

    Thanks

      Mike pointed you to a great place to start in the vault. Start simple, but you'll be amazed at the the progression you make. I began just making a few ornaments like mittens, etc, but have just started a monster landscape that I may get done by spring. (It is what I will work on between more pressing projects)

              There are several Mill Creeks here in WV. I was born and lived in Mineral county most of my life and now reside in Grant county WV. I used to trout fish in Mill Creek in Mineral county years ago. Glad to see another Hillbilly. Welcome aboard. Steve

                Spent today building a bench so I wouldn't have to work off of 2 saw horses and a piece of plywood. Now the saw wants to slide around so I am thinking I need a rubber bath mat or something under it. Dad helped and said now I need to build an 8 ft bench for other tools and bench space.

                  Get some stove bolts, lock washers and nuts and bolt that saw down! Or use wing nuts if you have to remove it.

                  It will cut down the vibration and give you a much more secure workspace.

                    How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                    The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                    I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                    Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                    If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                    Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
