  • 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.

              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 I were in the market for a new...

              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.
