  • New to this great site!

    Hello all,

    Great site, I have been scrolling on and off for the past ten years, mostly off.
    I make mostly collapsible baskets. I am looking for a horse pattern that I might be able to use in the baskets. Any thoughts?

    A bit about me, I live in Summerville, SC My scroll saw is a dw788, a move up for me from the old delta I first started on.

    Best Regards,
    Mike "Pep"

            Yay, welcome Pep!

            I've never tried those baskets - collapsible or otherwise - but I do love the look and want to learn to make them.

            This is definitely the site to hang out at for advice and support and just good companionship.

                  Welcome, Pep. Nice to see another seasoned scroller whose brain I can pick! For horse patterns the WoodenTeddybear is a good place to start.

                          He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                          Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                          I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                          You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
