  • Uuummmm....hi.

    Hi all. A friend gave me a delta scroll saw and since I'm a woodcarver I am experimenting with using scroll work to aid the carving process. I am interested in compound scroll work in thick wood. If ya'll have some good tips let me know. And thanks.

      Welcome from middle Tennessee. That's a pretty good friend you have there. Especially if he pointed you to this site. I'm pretty new to scroll work but, many others here to help you.

          Welcome RaspRoc. If you just scroll down to Bowles, boxes,compound & 3D projects, you will see many ideas on 3 D projects. They can give you some ideas. What Delta saw did you get? Hope it works out for you & enjoy scrolling. One bit of advice for you is to be sure to use quality blades. You will enjoy cutting more with good blades. HAVE FUN

              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....

              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)
