  • Pictures of my first attempts at Scrollsawing

    Here at some pictures of my first attempts at using a scroll saw.

    On the whole, I am very pleased with the way they came out.

    A huge thank you to everyone on this forum who helped me out along the way with advice and encouragement - especially Gill!

    Regards

    Gary

          Gary, I think you can move over to the "General" section. Are you sure you didn't practice just a LITTLE bit?

          Great cutting, and I like your taste in patterns, too, how the layering adds so much interest.

            Well done Gary! May I ask where those patterns are from?

              Thanks for the kind comments guys!

              I swear that the "Let It Snow" pattern was the first thing I cut with my new saw. The pattern was one I made myself using the Word Art function in Microsoft's Word. I must admit that I did make a few practice cuts in the waste though!

              The two rectangular patterns are from "Scenes Of North American Wildlife For The Scrollsaw" by Rick and Karen Longabaugh

              The two circular patterns are from "Wildlife Collector Plates for the Scrollsaw" by the same authors.

              Both books have so many nice patterns it is a job to pick which ones to start off with - so I picked the ones that looked the easiest!

              Regards

                Those really are 'the business', Gary. I'm delighted that you've reached such a high standard so quickly. Thanks for showing us .

                  Gill,

                  The thanks are all due to you - without your help, encouragement and advice I probably wouldn't even have a scrollsaw!

                  I have to say that the learning curve is somewhat shorter than for turning - thank goodness!

                  I am off skiing for two weeks from Sunday, but when I get back I am going to have a try at the Germans Shepherd portraits that you were kind enough to send me.

                  Regards

                    I can't wait to see what you do with the GSD patterns, Gary. You've come a long way very quickly with the scroll saw and I hope you enjoy going a long way very quickly on Sunday .

                        Brilliant stuff, Gary and beautifully presented too.

                        Definitely gives the new Axminster saw a good rep as well I think.

                        I am excited by those collector plates, I haven't seen them before with so many layers making up the image. I am thinking hard now about how to do something similar with a completely different type of subject.

                            What part of Wales are you from? God's Own Country (the South) - or are you a Gog??

                              You said, a long time ago, that the pictures over Wales, on our map, were better because things there are just a little more beautiful than the rest of the world.
                              I can see why you said that.
                              Awesome job Taffy. Soon Wales will be known for singers and scrollers

                                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
