  • Newbie Practice Patterns

    Here are a few functional patterns for those new to scrolling. The smaller one is a plate holder. The larger is a modified plate holder that should be able to support a larger piece like an 8x10 panel, not in a frame. Too top heavy and it will likely topple over.

    The patterns are small but will help hone one's curve cutting skills. As you can see, there are also a few straight lines. When you cut the slots (sized for 1/8" material) cut on the line and then shave with the blade to get a tight fit.

    You can use scraps for the practice but will end up with some display stands for your better work.

          Well, their pretty simple and not drawn professionally but I hope someone can use them for practice cutting.

              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
