  • Getting started again.

    I have an old scroll saw I bought a couple of years ago but never had much time or a whole lot of room to use it. I am looking forward to getting a better saw and seeing what I can do. Any suggestions what a good saw might be.

      I believe that the new Woodworkers Journal has a scroll saw review. I am well pleased with the DeWalt but it is a personal preference and a money available plus the major type of scrolling that you plan to do that will most influnence your saw choice. Buy the best you can afford.

        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)

        Excellent cutting and choice of woods. I've made a couple of those classics myself. Thank you for sharing, and pushing me to get busy!
