    I got really bold and tried a couple of intricate patterns to see if I was good enough to do them. I am. There are a couple of mistakes on each but I think it's not too bad for a relative beginner.

    The bass is from Steve Good's site. It is a pattern for a clock but I just cut off the clock part. Special thanks to Don R for his sailboat pattern.

          Thanks for the compliments. I have been sawing since March and usually can't wait until I can get back to it at the end of the work day. I've been practicing really hard and steadily. I have told myself many times "if you want to be good you have to practice, practice, practice". I find it very satisfying, so it's easy for me to make time to practice.

            If practice is what you want try cutting washers. Straight lines are hard, parallel straight line are harder but make them parallel circles now you have a challenge.....two perfect circles and parellel to each other.....

              I rally liked your use of wood grain to enhance to scrolling. Well done!

                Those look great. Pushing yourself with cuttings that are just outside of your comfort zone is a great way to practice and improve: you want to practice what you can't do (yet!), not what's already easy.

                  Great work!! Both look amazing. I agree with wedo, the use of the grain pattern on the bass is very well done.

                    I am overwhelmed by the comments. It's one thing to hear the wife say it's good but completely different to hear it from someone you respect. And I do respect you guys. Maybe I have finally found something I am good at. Thanks again, my confidence level has soared. I'll be trying some washers too shortly.

                        Both look very good. If by 'mistake' you mean a deviation from the pattern, then it's actually not a mistake, but an artistic choice.

                          Very nice cpowell. I think they look fine & the circle on the sailboat piece is very good practice. Cutting circles & straight lines are a challenge. Don't be affraid to do some easier patterns for practice, it will give you confidence & of coarse the more difficult ones will too. It's just more relaxing to throw an easy one in once in a while. Keep up the good work & enjoy Scrolling. Thanks for showing us.

                                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
