  • New to this - Is this piece made using scroll saw

    I really love the piece of work (photo attached) and would like to make it myself.

    I am wondering if the piece (the size would be about 3 feet x 2 feet) is made using scroll saw. If not, what technique you suggest?

    Thanks in advance.

    You could use a scroll saw to make that, but the scale and the low level of detail would lead me to use a jigsaw -- what we used to call a saber saw. You'd have trouble muscling a thing that size around on a scroll saw table, and unless you have an unusually big saw, you'd have to approach cuts from several directions. That's not to say it's terribly difflicult, just that the jugsaw would be more likely.

      Divide it up

      Ravi...If you're going to paint it and mount it on a backer you can scroll it in four different pieces so it will be more manageable on the saw table. Once painted the kerfs should be all but invisible.
      If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

        He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

        Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

        It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
