  • Hello Scrollsaw World

    Hello everyone...I am very excited to join the scroll saw community.

    I have been build many items from Steve Good's videos and Blogspot site (just built the gun he sent out yesterday, it came out Great!!!)

    I was looking at the SWAG Bowl videos out there and was wondering what the proper angle of my Saw should be so the pieces fit together. If I need to spend more time watching vidoes please let me know, I was hoping it's just a simple angle regardless of thickness.

    Any scrollsaw clubs in the Bridgewater New Jersey area?

        Chris, welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll find it well worth your while.

        The swag video was intended as a tutorial for scrollers already familiar with making bowls. That's why there's no basic information on things like the cutting angle. The cutting angle actually depends not only on the wood thickness, but on the width of the ring. As I discovered when I started making bowls, just any old angle won't work.

        If you click on "Videos" on the sidebar to the left of the posts, you'll find a video on making a basic bowl that I did to accompany an article for a basic bowl project that appeared in the SSW&C, Holiday, 2009 issue. And there's a lot of information on my blog about bowls, as well as more videos that you might find useful. There's a search feature on the blog, so you can get through the posts more easily.

        And if you have any more questions, the forum is a great place to post them, whether they deal with bowls or on any other aspect of scrolling. We're friendly and helpful, and love seeing pictures of projects of all kinds.

        Welcome aboard.
