  • Our grandson's first scroll saw project.

    Hello Everyone
    This is our grandson Scott he's 10 and this is his first scroll saw project. I was out in the shop and he came out and asked if he could make something. I found some 1/2" poplar and drew out a box for him. He did very good job for this first time. I think his first box came out better then mine did. Any and all comments are welcome.

        Looks like you have another scroller on your hands. He did a great job for his 1st box. Congratulate him for us if you would. Thanks for sharing his work with us.

            So when does Scott make his first bowl?

            You must be a proud grandpa, with such a cute and talented grandson. Please tell him that he did better than a lot of grownups. Can't wait to see what he's doing by the time he's 11.

                  Scott says: Thanks everyone for your kind commennts, Pepaw is a good teacher I cant wait untill my next project. I want to try a bowl or vase and maybe even a puzzle.
                  Scott was a good student I guess I need to get some more wood for his next project. And you so right about time in the shop with the grandkis being priceless.

                      Let's see here:

                      Mike wants a puzzle; Carole wants a bowl; so, I'm going to put in a request for some fretwork to round out the lad's education! :~{) And then Jim-Mex is going to come along and want segmentation!

                      But, you already took care of Wood Dog and No Pics/Never Happened.

                      BTW, happy birthday. Wish you a great afternoon of peace and quiet and maybe a little "sawdust time".

                        Isn't is a great feeling when the grandcritter wants to do what you do? Congratulations on creating another scroller. Not to many wiggles in the straight lines of his box. I still have trouble sometimes with very long straight cuts. I think they are the hardest to do.

                        A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

                              I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                              John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                              Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                              I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                              This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                              I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                              Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                              How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
