  • Scroll Saw Want a be

    Hello my name is Mike I have been doing scrollsawing for about 7 years. Most of my projects have been for my church during the Lentan season. Our pastor picks a subject and we made differnt pieces for each of the six weeks. most of it was pieces to hang on a cross we made. But we made 120 of each. this year we did the good Shepard. I made a tracing of a blown up picture of Christ holding a lamb and staff these projects seam to take on a life of their own. with all the deffinition cuts it totaled 57 cuts on each piece. It wouldnt have been bad except I had to make 120 of them.
    I live in Franklin Tn and am looking for clubs or groups in the nashville area.
    I am getting intrested in intersia projects but not sure where to start. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Mike

      Welcome Mike. It looks like you are well into the scrolling hobby, after 7 yrs. We would enjoy seeing some of the Lentan season projects that you have finished. You asked about Intarsia advice, but, I don't do it myself. I made one Canada Goose, but, was segmentation, using just one kind of wood & staining the different pieces for the colors needed. I'm sure someone will be on here to give you pointers in that area of Intarsia. Just keep on scrolling & enjoy it. Take Care

            Welcome Mike,
            For the intarsia you could go to a class with Judy Gale Roberts near Knoxville. She will get you started the right way.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

              I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

              To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

              I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
