    Finally received my new DeWalt saw on Saturday, LOVE IT!!! So I deceided to make the wife and kids something besides candy for there Easter basket's. What do you think? Be gentle! And Happy Easter everyone! O yeah, I made them out of 3/4" hardwood, using #1 blade and I only broke one blade, and it broke after feeding it through a hole and put the tension on it!

                That is really nice work.

                Congrats, and enjoy.

                        Well Done!

                        The font patterns can be very tricky, so accomplishing this as a beginner deserves applause.

                          Really nice work - which font?

                          Hi There, it's a really nice piece of work, just one question which font did you use? Is there a list somewhere of suitable fonts for scroll saw work?

                          Best wishes

                            This site should be on every woodworkers computer. As has been said the first image is Wenge....

                            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                            The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                            I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
