  • Hi from Oz

    Greetings from Down-under. Came across this forum searching for Chinese Chippendale fretwork/scrollsaw patterns. Very interested in starting scrollwork (not done it before, but I have a reasonable experience in wood construction.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
