  • Work in progress on cupcake box

    I have been working on my cupcake box most of the day today!! It felt good to get back into the shop after a couple busy stressful weeks! This is how far I got today:


    The base is Butternut, which I think is way to "stringy" for this. The icing is Cherry. It's not glued together yet. I tried to make it look "swirled" but I don't think I sanded the bottom of the icing layers enough.

    Thank you to Carole who responded to my multiple messages with questions. Trout and Wood Dog also gave me advice on this!! What a wonderful group!!! Thanks for looking!!

        I like the look of the butternut for the base, even if it is, 'stringy'.
        I can't wait to try my hand at one of these.
        Yours came out beautiful...!!!!

          The Hegner like some other saws have a sweet spot or not so sweet spot where they may vibrate. I know they need to have a solid footing.
          When we were younger (2005) we used to bring our saws to our club meeting in an old barn with wooden floors. The seasoned scrollers all had Hegners. The rest...

          I assume you are talking about changing the stroke length. Looking at the manual it says you can shorten it for cutting thin wood and or metal. I have never known anyone that did that. We have several Hegner owners in our club. I am not one of them.

          Has anyone replaced the eccentric on the Hegner scroll saw or made any adjustments to this part.
          I bought an used Hegner m22 and it vibrates at about 3/4 speed. Maybe I'm just over thinking this problem, last year I purchased a multi cut 3/25 inch Hegner it is a single speed and it runs like a...
