  • Just Starting scrolling

    Good afternoonn,
    I am just now starting to get into scrolling, in fact I don't have a scroll saw yet. Been doing woodwork for a few years and thought I would try this for a while.

      Welcome! I think you will like it. I am new too and I was not so sure and a bit nervous about the initial investment... but the amount of 'entertainment' time with the hours I have already spent has been well worth it.

        RJweb, make sure when you get a saw that it will take pin-less blades.
        After you get the saw make sure you have good tension on the blade. The blade should not move sideways more than 1/4". Have good speed, if not you might push too hard into the blade and the blade might start cutting with a bevel. Have slow feed rate.
        You can always email me if you have more questions.

            I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.
