  • 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.

            Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

            Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

            FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

            You should try the dragon vase pattern as well. I first made mine after Steve published his first pdf vase book by swapping in one of his dragon motifs from the online library. Thats a really good way to increase your supply of patterns. I think Steve liked it because the dragon was included in the...

            Hey Tim - it's been a while pal! Great to hear from you.

            Point taken care of! Yesterday I ordered 3 sheets of 3/4" of construction plywood to be delivered this morning to start mounting the roof
