    compound cutting: Think of making a chess piece. Draw one view of it on a block of wood. Then a side view on the side of that block of wood. Cut out the front side on the lines. Tape the pieces back together, cut on the lines on the side view and then remove the outside pieces of scrap. What is left in the center is the desired shape.

      Paul if you want to learn about compound cutting on the scroll saw, then jump right in.
      Jim's explanation is right on, and if you visit this link put out by Diana Thompson (the queen of compound cutting in my opinion) you will get a free pattern to try it out, along with a mini tutorial. Have fun. Scroll Saw Patterns by Diana Thompson at Scroll Saw Inspirations

          Diana Thompson did a great job of explaining.
          She is talking about the blade not cutting straight. Most blades have a burr on the right side, what makes the blade cut to the right. You have to move the wood some degree to the right to stay on the line. You no not need a blades with reverse teeth, The pieces what have fuzz on it are trow away pieces. Like she said, she is using a # 5 blade. She also sometimes uses a # 7. Both are Polar blades. When cutting the thick side, make sure you have good speed and push very, very slow into the blade, so that the blade will not bend and starting cutting with a bevel.

              Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

              Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

              Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

              My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
              I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
              Was it a good idea.....?...

              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
