  • Hello and 1 small question

    Hello fellow fans of woodworking. I am just getting into scrolling and stumbled across this site in search of some good patterns. I have a question that I think is probably a bit silly but I want to be sure before I proceed. On some of the patterns I see many "Alternate Cut Lines" that would separate parts of what look like a single piece. Can one of you guys fill me in on this? Thanks!

      Hello jpav, and welcome. I am sorry, but I am not familiar with the alternate cut lines you are talking about. I don't think I have any patterns that have them. Sorry, I can't help you at all. Where are the patterns from?

        For me especially my own the pattern is a guide butt not locked in stone. I do the final edit on the saw. I think most do the same. We all add our own touch.

          Welcome. As for the patterns, the question would be more easily answered if we knew what types of patterns you have seen. I'm not the least bit well versed in fretwork, but I can tell you that some of the intarsia and segmentation patterns have "alternate cut lines" which are used to change the complexity and/or detail of a project. These styles of woodworking involve cutting separate pieces and then assembling them again after shaping them. Hope this helps.

            Thanks for the welcome and the help. I should have included a link to what specifically I was talking about. Below is an example:

            Thanks again!

              jpav, all I can say is, you need to let us know what type of scroll pattern it is. Like Jan said, an Intarsia pattern or a segmentation pattern would be different than a fret or portrait scroll. The fret work type or portrait, usually isn't cut out, in pieces, like Intarsia. When you cut a portrait, all of the cuts need to be connected so the remaining wood doesn't fall out of the picture you are cutting. Hope we have helped you in the right way. Good Luck

                For clarification. JPV had posted his response prior to Perks response however our spam filter required jpv's post be moderated because it included the link. So it looks like he had posted but perk did not read his post when in fact perk could not see the post until i authorized it. Make sense?

                  By golly he found some alternate cut lines.
                  I'd say you have the option of cutting those or not. They add to the turkey but also make the beak fragile.
                  I'd think in this case they could be cut or not and the project would still be a good napkin holder.
                  Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

                      jpav, I agree with StephenD that these alternate cuts are not necessary to make the finished project. They would make it a little more decorative, but also would make the piece much more fragile and likely to break off. Some could possibly break off with blade movement while being cut. Your option, definitely.

                        Hey, Mike, you are right, I didn't see it. Cleared that up. I see where the lines are & looks like a good pattern. Thanks

                          When I saw that pattern I said (as Always) " I got to make that" then forgot it (as Always), Thanks for bringing it back to our attention. This time I got to make that.

                            Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                            Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
