  • I think I have him hooked

    He's a beginner, so I guess it fits here, 9-yr old great-grandson - this is the third run through of the practice pattern. He's already cut a star and a heart. I'm going to have him cut out a cat puzzle from the Saw magazine next.

      Excellent. Train him well. Will love seeing what he can come up with.

                Reminds me of when I started my grandson on a scroll saw. It gives them an other way to be creative. Have fun.

                  I just kept holding them against each other and saw the line one pass at a time. Much like you make an intarsia piece fit, that is off a little bit. These, of course, took many many passes. But it worked out....
