  • If you have questions about making a shell.

    Hello. I am glad to see that some people have already posted pictures of shells that they made using my instructions in the current issue - these remind me a lot of some of the first ones I made. I am putting together a list of frequently asked questions and answers along with some other helpful information on my web site. If you have a question that it doesn't cover then let me know and I will add it to the list - hopefully along with an answer.

      Hi Paul, each curved segment is cut with the table at a bevel angle so that the bottom side of each segment cut is a little larger than the top side. The outline of the larger bottom side is then traced on top of the next wedge as the pattern for the next larger segment. I hope I understood your question correctly.

            G'day Steve, I read on one post that you stated the smaller the angle the tighter the curve. Is that the wedge angle or scroll saw table angle or both? With your angle chart I take it that is the scroll saw table tilt. I attempted a couple prior to receiving your ebook and have posted a pic of my latest attempt using Marine Ply Wood in my Album here, it is approx. 9" diam. Thanks, this is a fun project.

              Thank you Steve, I have the ebook on my kindle fire and I made a shell using some 2by4 that a friend had cut for me and then I cut the segments and got a nice shell made. I really enjoyed making my shell and it is sitting in my room next to my tv... Thank you for all of your instructions and such. Will look at your site at these questions and answers and such. Have a great day Fay
              Have a great day, Fay.

                I needed to make a couple of custom sized Octagonal replacement windows, I wanted the most precision. I don't remember where I bought it. If I had seen the bi-directional Incra 1000 I probably would have bought it instead. With the 2000 you have to choose...

                Now that's one to make us smile! I've been meaning to try that sometime but procrastinating simply because I didn't stop to consider starting on an easier design to actually learn from. Great reminder. I love your jack-o-lantern!
