    This is the first time I ever had to do something like this. Thank you Scroll Saw. I have a question. What is the best wood to use on a saw. I am still learning about the different kinds of wood and their softness and hardness.

      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)
