  • Dusted off the scroll saw

    Hello, new guy here from Wisconsin. I've been woodworking for a few years and tool collecting for a few years more than that. Now that winter has hit I decided to drag my old Craftsman scroll saw into my basement and finally start to use it. I am hooked.

    I've been lurking here for a few weeks now and enjoy what I have seen and have a few questions to ask, so thanks for what you guys have already taught me and in advance for the future help!

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

                        I don't remember which one I used but I think it was somewhere around #12 which is .029 diameter. Anything between 12 and 19 will work you would just adjust your slot width. There is a pattern for bending it to shape do you have that?

                        Old wooden plates.

                        Over the years I've found that cutting old wooden plates can be very rewarding. Most of them are very good wood and when you finish your cut out the plate already has a nice finish on it.. I normally buy mine at yard sales or Good Will whenever I can find them....

                        I've found in the past that you can find some very nice wood from old wooden plates. When you finish your cut out the wood already has a nice finish. I am only adding a picture of 6 but I have done many of these....
