  • Relief and Compound Cuttings


    Well dear friends, I have now reached the end of my first month as a scroller and I must say I am severely hooked.
    I wanted to share with you my first attempts at relief sawing and compound sawing as I continue to work through John Nelson's lesson book ( John for such a terrific tool for a beginner to use to start to learn this art).
    Each one of these new methods are so exciting to me.
    I know I overcut one of the loops of the bow.
    Thanks for looking and for all your continued teaching.

      Nice kitty, Your doing good. And, the bow looks great I think. Is that from the nelson book? It is nice to see someone get a scrollsaw and learn as they go through the steps. I think far to often people get a scrollsaw on impulse, take it home, put in a pin end blade, and expect to see a dome clock sitting on the finishing table a few hours later. Your doing great, and your saw it working good I hope. Dale

        Thanks, Dale and yes both of those sawings are done from John Nelson's lesson book. I appreciate your supporting my feeling that for me, this is the proper way for me to begin learning. I still have lessons on some in-lay work and segmentation. It was fun to saw these last two projects.
        My saw is working great, quite a relief after my initial problem with the bent arm, that it sounds like maybe you remember.

              Those are really cool projects, Dale. Nobody would guess that you're a beginner .

                  Wonderful work!
                  Those are all projects to be proud of.
                  Sometimes experienced scrollers settle into a style of cutting they enjoy and forget about all the other things you can do with a saw.
                  These are really cool projects.

                    What I want to know is:

                    Are you going to paint polka dots on that bow?

                    It just seems to beg for a finish.


                    All kidding aside, you are progressing very nicely. DO NOT throw away these exercises. You will be very happy to have a reference point to which you can compare your progress in a few months, or in a few years.

                    You will be amazed at your progress, and amused at the same time. Anyways, you won't regret it.

                    Regards,
