    Hello,
    Just joined this forum. All the bragging pieces I have seen are just beautiful!!! Just getting started and am enjoying it immensely. I have a couple of old 2 man buck saws and was thinking about having them painted with a scene. But since I got my new scrollsaw for Christmas I was wondering if anyone knows where I might locate a pattern and do something with it myself (after I have a LOT more practice). Thanks

                Welcome aboard. Did I read it correctly? You are considering scrollsawing some type of design in your antique buck saws? The blade of the bucksaw? That will be extremely hard to do, that old hardened steel is tough stuff. you will need some specialty blades for sure, and consider the sawdust (metal filings), and how they can effect the moving parts on your scrollsaw. I would suggest leaving the bucksaws natural, or painting them, and scroll some good old fashioned wood instead! Dale (if I misinterpreted your post, I apologize)

                  Not that way lucky788scroller. I was thinking of using some type of wood and then using the metal as a background to attach it to. Some sort of landscape, flower, tree something pattern. And Steviegwood - read some posts before about you all being nosy!!!haha My name is Pat. Been reading a lot of the posts and everyone is so informative and helpful and playful. Lots of good reading

                      I agree with you Lucky. I can't imagine anything that would work in a scrollsaw to cut through the an old bucksaw. A plasma cutter ... probably ... and it would be REALLY cool, but the steel in a buck saw is meant to cut stuff, not to be cut ... could be tricky.

                            Thanks to all of you. It will be a little while before I attempt anything. I have seen regular hand saws ( I think by CraftyNYscroller) similar to what I would like to do with the bucksaw. Just working on small puzzles and practice things right now but am getting very addicted to it. Might interfere with my gardening.

                                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?
