  • My other beginner scrollsawer

    I've started working on my letters. I went to take a break and this is what I come back to. He's 9 and a chip off the old block. I may get it back when school starts.

    Much better than finding a PS2 controller or a satelite remote in his hand.

    Looks like you'll have to buy another scrollsaw.

        I was his age when I was first introduced to scrolling -- those are the best memories I have of my childhood is the years I spent in the woodshop of a neighbor..

          It's great to see a youngster who's so keen. If those trees on the front lawn vanish soon, you'll know who to blame .

            I hope my Grandkids will want to start when they get old enough that would be great to teach them. He looks very happy to start.

            Good luck,


            My saw is a DeWalt788 Measure twice; cut once; count fingers after cut

              Sure beats wondering where he's at!
              That'll come when he dicovers girls don't have cooties.

              There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

                I know these saws are relatively safe, but blades do break & things can happen. I guess I'm trying to say I hope he wears safety glasses when he cuts!

                    I am a proud and partial father but my son really is a gem.
                    He is super keen to anything mechanical. When he was 2 1/2 he took the knob off the bathroom door with a screwdriver. He helps work on his(our) go-karts and is helping me build a shed. He has even helped with the foundry stuff.

                    He has always been under foot whenever I have a project going. So far we have kept it simple enough using relatively safe tools like a sander, hammer, impact gun, and drill. I don't think you can start too early with kids. All it takes is a little patience. But that is no different than training anyone. The point being, a little patience early, more than pays for itself.

                    I will of course post his first actual project. He is working on a small piece of clipart from word.

                    Good point Randy. We do a good job with hearing and eye protection using the obvious tools and this should be no exception.

                      It's a well known fact that girls never had cooties. Only boys have cooties.

                          Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                          How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                          The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                          I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                          Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                          If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                          Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
